Slow Cooker Spiced Carrot and Lentil Soup Recipe

Slow Cooker Spiced Carrot and Lentil Soup Recipe

This carrot and lentil soup recipe is one of my go-to soup recipes. It’s perfect from Autumn onwards and is lovely and warming, perfect for those colder months.

I usually make this in the slow cooker as it’s so easy but you can make it in a saucepan the conventional way if you want the soup more quickly. It’s really easy to make and very healthy. The lentils pack a nice protein punch so it is filling too.

    I like the idea of being able to throw everything in the slow cooker and forget about it for a few hours.

    Lovely simple recipe, I don’t have a slow cooker but am increasingly thinking that I should get one.
