Crock-pot Vegetable Lentil Soup

Crock-pot Vegetable Lentil SoupI love when I don’t have to go to the store and can make a wholesome meal from my food storage and garden.  This vegetarian soup is hearty and filling.  Because it’s made with lentils and rice you get a complete protein!


1 large onion, chopped

4 garlic cloves, chopped

3-4 ribs celery, chopped

3-4 carrots, chopped

1 pound baby mushrooms, chopped

1 cup dry lentils

1 cup dry brown rice

8 cups organic chicken stock or vegetable stock if you wan to make it vegan

1 tablespoon tomato paste

2 bay leaves

2 teaspoons fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried

2 cups fresh chopped Swiss chard

Sea salt and pepper

Add all ingredients to the crock-pot except for the Swiss chard.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-5 hours.  Add the Swiss chard at the very end just before serving and stir to heat through.  Add salt and pepper to taste.   Serve with warm homemade bread and green salad.
