Ham shanks add rich, salty flavor to a slow-cooker soup loaded with lentils and vegetables.
Pair this thick and meaty soup with a crisp green salad tossed with orange segments and a tangy orange vinaigrette.
For a touch of color, stir chopped fresh tomato into the soup with the cooked ham and spinach in step 3.
Lentils come in many colors-brown, red and yellow. The most common variety is brown lentils, which you will find in most supermarkets.
