Lentil and Wild Rice Soup

I got this from a Crockpot cookbook and did some tweaking. You could easily make it vegetarian by using vegetable stock. No meat makes it budget friendly. Dried lentils are pretty inexpensive. If you need to thicken it, mashed potato flakes work well.

  • ½ cup dried lentils sorted and rinsed
  • 3 cups water
  • 6 oz. package of long grain rice blend w/ spice pack
  • 14 oz can of chick broth
  • 10 oz package of frozen veg mix
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond or soy milk

1. Cover lentils with water and soak overnight or for 6-8 hours. Drain and discard soaking water.

2. Put all ingredients into slow cooker, including 3 cups fresh water. Mix well

3. Cook on low in a crockpot for 5-8 hours.
