There is nothing better than a warm, comforting bowl of hearty soup in the fall or winter months - unless that soup is made in the crockpot!!! Yes! If you haven't discovered a crockpot or slow cooker, then get yourself one...it will change your life.
This recipe, like many crock pot recipes, can be prepared the night before. Just chop up all your veggies and pre-measure your ingredients. Then you can just dump everything in the crockpot the morning of and let it cook away all day.
This Vegetable Lentil Soup with Sweet Potatoes is a great Meatless Monday treat and the leftovers make great lunches! Enjoy!!!
