Introduction

An easy soup to make in the slow cooker! An easy soup to make in the slow cooker!
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 cup lentils
    2 cups beef broth
    12 oz package of turkey or chicken sausage (spicy is good!)
    1 cup chopped carrots
    1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
    1 9 or 10 oz. package of fresh spinach


Directions

Use a 6-quart slow cooker. Rinse your lentils under cold water, and place them into an empty slow cooker. Add beef broth, and sliced sausage. Add the entire can of tomatoes and a cup of chopped carrots. The broth and the seasoning from the sausage is enough to flavor this dish-- there is no need for additional spices.


Cover and cook on low for 5 hours, then stir in fresh spinach. It'll look like a lot at first, but the spinach will wilt and I promise it will all fit. Cover again and let the spinach soften for about 15 minutes. Serve in a shallow bowl with cornbread.
