Number of Servings: 6


    6 cups organic vegetable broth
    1 (8 oz) smoked turkey leg (found in most grocery stores)
    1/2 pound dried lentils, rinsed and drained
    1 (8 oz) container refrigerated prechopped celery, onion, and bell pepper mix
    2 tsp chopped fresh oregano OR 1/2 tsp dried oregano
    1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
    Nonfat Greek yogurt (optional)
    Oregano sprigs (optional)


I like to cook this overnight and divide into pre-measured servings before I leave for work. I take 1 serving with me, put 1 serving in the fridge and the rest in the freezer.

Lentils can be found in different sizes and colors, ranging from yellow to red-orange to green and brown, all of which can be purchased whole or split. Lentils cook quickly and don't require soaking.


Easy slow cooker recipe. Also works great in a pressure cooker. Makes your house smell delicious.

Cook in slow cooker on low 8 to 10 hours or until turkey falls off bone. Remove turkey leg from cooker. Remove and discard skin. Shred meat; return to cooker, discarding bone. Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with Greek Yogurt and oregano sprigs.

Serving Size: Makes 6 (1.3 cup) servings

Number of Servings: 6
