Ground cumin gives a slight Southwestern spin to hearty lentil soup.
bag (1 lb) dried brown lentils, sorted, rinsed
medium carrots, chopped (about 1 cup)
large onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
cloves garlic, finely chopped
cartons (32 oz each) Progresso™ chicken broth (8 cups)
can (6 oz) tomato paste
cup dry sherry or Progresso™ chicken broth
teaspoons ground cumin
teaspoon dried thyme leaves
Spray 5- to 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. In cooker, mix ingredients.
Cover; cook on Low heat setting 8 to 10 hours. Stir well before serving.
Lentils are rich in protein, fiber, iron and folic acid. They are also low in calories and fat.
Got leftovers? Since lentils continue to absorb liquid, you may have to add a little more chicken broth to the soup when you reheat it. Just stir in broth until the soup is the desired consistency.
