Lentil soup crock pot style - it's a wonderful thing - easy, aromatic, healthy - and even better when someone else makes it for you.
My mother-in-law put this vegetable lentil soup at lunch time, and it smelled so amazing simmering away that I decided I had to share it with you.
Lentil Soup Crock Pot Style

She got the recipe from a cook in Austin, Texas on food.com, and it's super simple - basically vegetables, lentils and herbs.
I like the mass amount of spinach stirred through a the end, because I find lentil soups too heavy if there isn't much vegetable in them.
If I were making this, I'd probably add some smoked paprika (my new love, thanks to Dreena Burton) and maybe a bit of balsamic vinegar at the end.
I'd also probably throw some parsley in with the spinach, just for a little extra hit of flavor and nutrients.
However you put it together, the great thing about making soup in the crock pot is that you can leave it to simmer all day on its own...
