Need the perfect recipe to keep you warm this winter that your entire family will enjoy (EVEN THE KIDS)? Here it is, you’re welcome!
TURKEY LENTIL SOUP:
- Carrots, peeled and chopped
- Celery chopped
- 1 onion chopped
- 3 cloves garlic pressed
- Vegetable broth
- 2 cups lentils rinsed
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 1/2 pound ground Turkey (browned in frying pan) *optional*
- Potatoes cubed
- Put all of the ingredients in slow cooker, set on low and leave for the day OR set on high and leave it for half the day
You can add salt, pepper and any soft vegetables (for ex. Kale), 10 minutes before you’re about to serve.
I didn’t add measurements for some of the vegetables because I just use whatever’s leftover in my fridge. I like making slow cooker recipes at the end of the week when I need to use up my vegetables so I don’t waste anything. We buy all organic from Whole Foods so YES, I make damn sure I don’t waste a thing (my husband should be kissing my feet for this). I made such a large batch of this that I was able to freeze some of the leftovers as well to use for later. My 1.5 year old son LOVED this recipe and ate 2 large bowls of this last night. You don’t need to add meat to this recipe, I just so happened to have ground turkey on hand or you can use chicken if you prefer. Either way, your lentil soup it will taste amazing and it’s packed with nutrients. (Side-note: Leftover turkey from the holidays would be a great addition to this dish).
