Another hearty filled-bowl recipe, and another slow cooker one, too- because what else is a busy mama to make in the heart of winter? I surely do not crave heaping salads when there is frost on the ground. But rest assured, healthy mama, there are other ways to get in your veggies in a warm, comforting way even in the dead of winter. This lentil soup is one I’ve been making for years. It’s hearty and filling, packed with fiber, iron and b-vitamins from the lentils and with simple seasonal ingredients (carrots, celery and onions- you can use fresh or canned tomatoes) it’s a soup you could easily make every single week.
