Valium used to be called “Mother’s Little Helper”. Today I would argue that that title should belong to the slow cooker. I made this recipe for Sweet Potato and Lentil Soup last night, except I modified it a bit to be even lazier and cut out some steps.
So basically, my modified recipe was:
- 500g red split lentils (rinsed)
- 8 c. water (or broth)
- 2 small sweet potatoes (chopped)
- 3 carrots (chopped)
- 3 stalks celery (chopped)
- 2 tsp curry powder
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 1 tsp salt
- 5cm piece of ginger (grated)
Then I put it in the slow cooker on high for 5 hours. It was quite tasty, especially considering how little work I put into it.
