Slow cooker red lentil and vegetable soup. Stay warm and cozy this season with this healthy slow cooker lentil soup. It’s one of those easy set-and-forget recipes that make great lunches to take throughout the week!
I love cooking soup in the winter because it’s so cozy and fills you up for hours. This lentil and vegetable soup is packed full of veggies and is super satisfying.
The red lentils make the soup’s texture nice and thick. It stays that way without any need for a blender. Red lentils cook down and become soft for a thick, textured soup. You could also use other lentils, but you’ll need to adjust the cooking time.
