Substituting meat with another protein source a couple of nights a week is a great way to add variety and vegetables to your diet. Today we share a great recipe for Lentil Soup which is perfect for a slow cooker. And, because lentils are high in vitamins and fiber, it will satisfy even the meatiest of appetites.

4 to 6 stalks of celery, washed and sliced

4 to 6 carrots, peeled and diced

4 to 6 cloves of garlic, crushed or diced

3 Tbsp. vegetarian chicken bouillon powder

1 lb. dried lentils

1 small can tomato paste

1 to 2 tomatoes, diced

Salt and Pepper to taste

In skillet, sauté the diced onion, celery, carrots and garlic

In soup pot, bring the water to a boil. Add chicken bouillon powder, stirring to dissolve.

Add sauteed vegetables, lentils, tomato paste, diced tomatoes, and bay leaf.
