“No Recipe” Veggie Lentil Soup in the Slow Cooker

I posted a pic of this soup on Instagram recently, and afterwards, I had a few requests for the recipe. But, there is no recipe! I just tossed a bunch of ingredients in my slow cooker and this soup was the end result. I love hearty veggie soups and stews in colder months since it’s the winter equivalent of a meal-salad and keep me stuffed for hours. I’ve been enjoying the Trader Joe’s canned vegetable lentil soup a lot this winter, and decided to make my own big batch, since nothing is easier than soup in a slow cooker.

Ingredients (approximate)

1 cup dry green lentils

5 carrots, diced

1 white onion, diced

1 bag string beans, trimmed and cut into bite sized pieces

1 white potato, diced

1 28-oz can diced tomatoes

4c vegetable broth

a few shakes of dried thyme

a few shakes of dried oregano

a few shakes of cumin

salt to taste

Place all ingredients in slow cooker (I have a large 6 quart one) and set to cook on low for 8 hours.
