Recipe Monday – Ham Lentil Soup

Look, there’s just no way to make this look appetizing. But it’s delicious, so I tried my best.

 

 

 

 

 

1 cup dried lentils

1 cup chopped celery

1 cup chopped carrots

1 cup chopped onion

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 1/2 cups diced cooked ham

1/2 teaspoon dried basil

1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1 bay leaf

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

32 ounces chicken broth

1 cup water

8 teaspoons tomato sauce

 

In a 3 1/2 quart or larger slow cooker combine the lentils, celery, carrots, onion, garlic and ham. Season with basil, thyme, oregano, the bay leaf and pepper. Stir in the chicken broth, water and tomato sauce. Cover and cook on Low for 11 hours. Discard the bay leaf before serving.

Boom. That’s it. You’re done. It’s so good, lasts forever, and we served it with grilled cheese. Yes.
