Simple Lentil Veggie Soup

One time while grocery shopping my son threw some dried lentils into my cart.  I didn’t realize until I got home.  I had never used lentils before but I decided to make a soup and came up with this Simple Lentil Veggie Soup.  And it was delicious, so we kept it as a favorite!

Lentil Nutrition

Lentils are great for you.  They contain a lot fiber, protein and and iron, along with other vitamins.  Another great thing about lentils is they are cheap, you can make a lot of soup with a small amount of lentils.  This soup is filled with tons of vegetables and very filling.  It’s great on a chilly night.  In this recipe I use chicken broth and bacon bits but you can easily make this soup vegetarian/vegan by using vegetable broth and leaving the bacon bits out.  This would be a good way to use up any vegetables in the fridge too!

I think this would be a perfect crock pot dish.  Cook the lentils ahead of time then add everything into the crock pot and enjoy later. 🙂 I love my crock pot, it’s one of my favorite things as a busy mom.  Here is the one I have, it’s inexpensive and it works great.  It has lasted me years and it’s easy to clean, which is a huge perk as busy moms.
