    Default Lentil Soup (basic)

    Description: This is a very simple, VERY basic soup. Modifications are almost endless and, if anyone is interested, variants can be posted later.

    As with so many of the things I make, this one is great for slow cookers (crockpots).
    Serving Size: 4
    Time: prep time 10 min, cook time 6-8 hours
    Difficulty: Easy

    Ingredients:
    1. 1C lentils
    2. 3C water
    3. salt and pepper to taste
    4. 1 small onion
    5. 1 large baked potato or equivalent amount of mashed potato or 1.5 C cooked rice
    Preparation:
    1. Sort lentils removing any dirt, stones, or discolored lentils.
    2. Dice onion
    3. Mash or cube (small) the baked potato (I prefer to mash it)
    Instructions:
    1. Put diced onion in the bottom of the slow cooker.
    2. Add lentils, water, and seasoning.
    3. Top with potato.
    4. Cook on low 6 to 8 hours. I like to stir it occasionally but it's not essential to do so.

    I don't believe I have ever tried this before. I have had lentils before, but not sure how they were cooked or flavored. Thanks for posting this, Paul!

    Cheers,
