It’s SOUP DAY! And I’m seriously excited for you. It’s time for the Best Detox Crockpot Lentil Soup.
因为我看到你,生活是cra的饥饿的读者zy right now, who has a hard time finding the time to cook even though you love food, who opens the fridge to grab a quick lunch to take to work in the morning rush only to find NOTHING that seems good enough, who values the big bowl of comfort food pasta above all else, who is not asking for much other than GOOD FOOD that is made for REAL LIFE.
I see you. I know you think I’m not watching because I’m on the other side of this computer-ma-jig, but I’m watching (um, in a not-creepy and not-literal way – just felt like I should clarify. pls don’t leave.).
So since I see you and understand you because I am just like you in these feelings, today I honor you (us?) with this super cozy, big-time nutritious, easy to prepare soup.
And while this soup tastes good without the extras, it tastes BETTER with them. Cue the bread and cheese.
How to Make the BEST Lentil Soup
Then we’re getting awesome by adding butternut squash, which partially melts into a creamy textured miracle, lentils (always lentils), and yellow split peas because WOW color.
这一切蕴积成最好的房子后的气味，然后我们做的魔术事情，它需要在上面：泥与橄榄油汤的一部分，形成柔滑的乳液然后被重新添加到汤。YES PLZ 4EVR。
I ended mine with a spash of sherry and red wine vinegar because I’m currently having a moment with tangy foods.
What to Serve with Lentil Soup
There’s a lot going on in this soup, but if you want to round it out for a whole meal, I’d recommend a few extras:
- No Knead Cheese Bread（是）
- 一成分Socca(yummy gluten-free flatbread for dipping purposes)
- Simple green salad
Literally the Easiest
That’s it. That’s the soup. SO EASY. It requires a bit of front-end chopping to prep the veggies, but I’d guess it took me 30-45 minutes to cut everything up and get it in the crockpot, and in return I was gifted with 8 soup servings of this nutritious + cozy wonderfood. NOT A BAD DEAL.
