  1. My goodness, Melissa! These lentil soup pictures are absolutely stunning! I always find it hard to photograph bean-based soups and stews but you have really done justice to the deliciousness that is lentils. The recipe sounds easy and tasty too!

    1. Thanks Shannon! They are hard to photograph. Some how they turned out, but this was such a last minute recipe, I’m surprised they did. It always turned out that those have the best pictures, doesn’t it?

  2. I;m new to using a slow cooker – I see There is not mentioning of soaking the lentils overnight, can I assume I don’t need to do that because of the length thei are in the slow cooker?


    1. You’re right. You don’t need to soak them overnight because the slow cooker will take care of everything! Enjoy!

  3. 16 cups (4 quarters) seems like a lot – not sure my cooker holds that… am I misreading your directions? hoping to make it tonight for tomorrow 🙂 Thanks so much!

    1. I have a 6 quart slow cooker, and it almost fills it up to the top once it’s cooked. Most slow cookers are 6 quarts, but you should check to make sure yours is.

  4. So very good! I added some sweet Italian sausage & a whole box of broth to thin it out some. Added a bit more cumin due to extra liquid. Husband did a backflip!

    1. I’m sorry. I’m not providing nutrition information at this time. When I find a solution that seems reliable and accurate, I would be happy to, but I’m still searching for the right tool right now. Sorry I can’t be more helpful!
