I’m sure there are a few of you out there still digging out from under the Easter grass, Dishes, and … leftovers (like me). So, I thought I’d share the easy recipe that I’m making for dinner tonight: Easter Monday Ham & Lentil Soup (I made that up). 😀 It’s in the Crock Pot right now- it smells delicious.
- 2 cups lentils
- 1 to 1 1/2 cups diced ham
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1 bay leaf
- 2 ribs celery, chopped
- 1/2 cup diced carrots
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- seasoned salt and pepper, to taste
Combine all ingredients with 2 quarts water in the slow cooker. Cook on low, covered, 8 to 10 hours (if you don’t have 8-10 hours – you can cook it on high for 4 hours stirring every half-hour to 45 minutes). Taste and adjust seasonings and serve.
I used my Zyliss chopper for the first time – I got this for a wedding or shower gift, um… about 7 years ago (blush). I think I’m in love.
