Introduction

f/v 2
High fiber
vegetarian
kid-friendly

This soup truly is a lifesaver for busy families! On days that we are occupied with homework
and sports until dinnertime, I can mix this together in a flash and put everything in the slow cooker
before picking the boys up from school. When we arrive home at dinner time, there’s a warm meal
waiting for us to enjoy.
If I am making this soup in the spring or summer, lemon is a great way to finish the soup; when
it is cold outside I reach for the hot sauce!

    To use cooked lentils is wrong. They would be mush. Use uncooked. - 1/3/13

    Chef Meg's video shows 4 hours on HIGH, but the recipe says 4 hours on low. I followed the recipe and didn't have a meal for my family because the lentils were still hard. We also think it needs some salt. I think it will be better once the lentils are fully cooked and we add some salt. - 9/10/12

    Question regarding the 1 cup of lentils:
    Is that 1 cup of dry lentils? Or do you have to soak them first?
