Lentil Soup starts to sound extra delicious to me as soon as the fall season approaches.  The absolute best way to make lentil soup is in the slow cooker.

 

This Easy Crockpot Vegetable Lentil Soup Recipe has been a family favorite ever since Big D was a baby. The soft veggies were perfect finger foods for her little fingers.  Ahhh the memories :)

 

Now that my girls are getting older, they ask for this soup all the time.  And I am MORE than happy to make this veggie packed soup for them.

  1. Nice and easy recipe. Thank you.

  2. Perfect for my boy who just started an ortho appliance. I’ve been hunting healthy soup recipes for our daily meals and lunchbox items. Thanks for this easy to make crockpot soup!

  3. Love lentils, the crockpot, and you!! Adding this to the list! :)

  4. This really sounds good!

  5. Are the lentils the dry variety??

  6. Making this right now! Thank you so much! My kitchen smells wonderful. :-)

  7. This was absolutely delicious!! Our whole apartment building smells amazing and it was so easy! Perfect for this fall day!

  8. I am making this right now and it seems like there wont be enough liquid?? I am 4 hours into the cooking time, should I put more broth or is it supposed to be a thick soup?

    • If you like a soupier soup, you can add more water or broth. Lentil soup tends to be a a thick soup, but more liquid wouldn’t hurt anything if that is your taste :)

  9. i am definitely going to start this tonight before bed for tomorrows dinner. sounds and looks very yummy.

  10. This looks amazing, can’t wait to try it :-) Did you use red, green or brown lentils?

  11. Hi Corey,

    If I don’t have a crockpot could I use my cast iron stove top dutch oven instead? Would you keep it on simmer in lieu of the low setting on a crockpot? Would you cook for the same length of time?
    Thanks!

  12. Hi there! I really want to try this recipe tonight, but I’m short for time…do you think the recipe will work on high for 4 hours? Thanks!!

    • I think that should work. If you have a couple minutes to saute the thicker veggies to soften them a little bit before putting them into the crockpot, that might help too. Hope that helps!

  13. Thanks for this recipe. The flavor is pretty good but I really don’t think it can be called a soup. It’s more like cooked lentils and vegetables with very little broth. To make it soupy, I’d reduce the lentils to 2 or 2 1/2 cups. I had to add 4 more cups of broth and it’s still not soupy. Will probably have to freeze the leftover lentils to add into other soups.

  14. Thanks for the recipe! I added extra carrots and celery, and it came out almost too thick when I woke up this morning. Lentils absorbed more water than I thought. It turned out fine after I added 2 more cups of water. House smelled great!

  15. Awesome recipe! I made it two weeks ago but I used split peas (I thought I had lentils!) and it was so yummy. I’m making it again this weekend for my son’s first birthday party…. This time with lentils :)

    I made a variation of your stew and loved it. I posted my adaptation on my site here:

  17. Please post more recipes like this one! Do you have other bean soups or a split pea soup to share? I am on a gluten free diet and am always looking for options. Meat is okay if it’s in a soup or stew – just not noodles.

  18. This was delicious! The only modification I made was I used vegetarian broth.. it was flavorful and filling. A great meal, and another great option for my vegetarian teen! Thank you!

  19. Worst lentil soup I’ve ever had.

  20. Von Kruiser says:

    I’ll say that this is not a good recipe. 4-6 cloves of garlic and the onion made the whole house stink to high heaven. Put it outside to finish cooking. As for your breath don’t plan on being in the same room with anyone.

    • Onion and garlic are so good for you! Sorry you don’t like the taste of those two things, they are a main ingredients for this recipe :)
