Thanks to your slow cooker, this dinner of Lemony Lentil Soup is ready by the time everyone gets home in the evening. Top this slow-cooker soup with a dollop of yogurt for added zing.

How to Make It

Step 1

In slow cooker, combine onion, carrots, garlic, lentils, cumin, ginger, cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. salt, broth and 3 cups water. Cover and cook on low until lentils and vegetables are tender, 6 to 7 hours.

Step 2

Stir in spinach, cover, raise heat to high and cook for 20 minutes. Stir in lemon juice, season with salt and serve.

It's a do-over

I think this is terrific. Didn't use a slow cooker, actually made mine in a pressure cooker, but stove top would work fine too. Maybe a little more salt, and careful with the lemon juice. Yum
