Crockpot Monday: Lentil Minestrone Soup

Last week, we had Italian Minestrone and this week, we're ditching the meat and having Lentil Minestrone! This would be great for those of you who do Meatless Monday or who just aren't meat lovers!

Lentil Minestrone:

2 cups lentils, rinsed
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 cup diced carrot
1 onion, peeled and diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 Tablespoon Italian seasoning
2 teaspoons paprika
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 cups hearty torn greens, like kale or chard
4 cups vegetable or chicken broth


Use a 6-quart slow cooker. Put the rinsed lentils into the bottom. Add the diced celery, carrot, onion, and garlic. Add the entire can of diced tomatoes, and then add the seasonings and torn greens. Stir in the broth.

Cover, and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours, or until the lentils are soft.

Serve with grated Parmesan cheese, if desired, and a hunk of garlic bread.

Yum! Let me know what you think! Do you prefer this or the Italian version?
