Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This soup was lacking. Lentil soup is traditionally thick and rich. Mushrooms would be a good addition to this. And something to thicken it up a bit. It's also rather bland despite the spices and existing vegetables. It was okay, but this was not a winner for my father and me.

Can you do this in a crockpot?

Hello! Yes, you can make this recipe in your slow cooker. It would need to cook for about 7 to 8 hours on LOW heat, or until the lentils are tender. Enjoy!

Very good. Husband loved it. He thought it was similar to split pea. Today we're having leftovers. Gonna try a new product called turkey ham to go with it.

8 servings is a lot of soup... I would suggest making half the quantity if the soup is only for one or two people, or freezing some of the soup for later use, which is what I intend to do.

Good soup if you like lentils. I did exact recipe but fewer carrots & bit more celery & green pepper.
