Crockpot Curried Lentil Soup

This was another of those happy experimental things…it turned out absolutely delicious…

Crockpot Curried Lentil Soup

Into the crockpot, dump the following unceremoniously:

  • a bag of frozen bell peppers and onions, or 1 bell pepper and 1 onion (or more) chopped up
  • 1 cup green (or other) lentils, rinsed and picked
  • 1 28 oz can diced tomatoes in juice
  • 2 tbs curry powder, or 1 tbs curry powder and 1 tbs garam masala
  • 1 quart broth of choice (chicken or vegetable)
Cook on low up to 8 hours. Serve in bowls with naan bread on the side, or over brown rice or couscous. (I used a 5 quart crockpot.)
Curry powder and Garam masala are spice blends you can find on their own, but it’s also fairly easy to find recipes to make your own of each. This made a delicious dinner on a night I didn’t have time to cook and was too exhausted to do it anyway–saved us from ordering pizza or something equally processed and expensive!
Plenty of leftovers too. I may cook this when my parents come to visit.
