"My family is from Greece and this lentil soup recipe is adapted from my traditional Greek lentil soup (fakes) recipe. Since becoming a mom finding time to cook has been hard and this soup was a perfect slow cooker candidate. My husband and I think it tastes better than when made on the stove. Baby loves it, too!"

  1. Place lentils in a medium saucepan, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Boil for 10 minutes, drain well, and add to the slow cooker.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Do not skip the step of pre-boiling the lentils; if you don't do this, your lentil soup will turn out like sludge.
