“Another lovely soup! You sound more believable if you say things with an exclamation mark at the end. You’re going to love this soup!
5 carrots, diced
1 large onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 yellow pepper, minced
3 cups red lentils, that don’t stay red after they’re cooked
4 cups broth, chicken or veggie
2 cups water
1 1/2 t salt
1 lemon, zest and juice
1 T fresh rosemary
Put all of the ingredients, except for the lemon zest, juice, and the rosemary into a six quart slow cooker. Cook on LOW for 6 hours.
Stir in the lemon zest, juice, and rosemary.
Adjust seasoning with S&P.
Another slow cooker recipe I love because it’s delicious and I get to put everything into the pot without browning anything. A one pot meal! (Note the exclamation mark.)
This would also be great with chunks of chicken or ham added into the mix. If they’re leftovers and already cooked I would add them about 15 to 20 minutes before you call time.
FYI – I tend to use grated lemon peel from a jar rather than donating a thin layer of my finger to the recipe. If I’m feeling lucky I might go the fresh lemon route. Some days are better than others.
