slow cooker lentil soup



INSTRUCTIONS:

1 ) Heat the avocado oil in a pan on medium-high heat then add the onion and let cook for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and let cook another 2 minutes, then pour the onions & garlic into the slow cooker.

2 ) Add all the rest of the ingredients, except for the kale to the slow cooker. There  should be enough liquid to completely cover all the vegetables. (If there’s not, add some more broth)

3 ) Cook on low for 8 hours, or high for 4 hours.
15 minutes before serving, add in the kale & remove the bay leaves.



4 ) Taste and adjust any seasoning if necessary.
Serve with freshly chopped parsley if desired.

NOTES:

If you don’t have a slow cooker I recommend this one.

If your soup becomes very thick while cooking, add in some more broth at the end.

I just a reduced sodium vegetable broth so I can control how salty the soup turns out.
