Slow Cooker Vegan Lentil Parsnip Soup

Another super simple recipe that everyone loves. I made it for my New Year’s Eve party, and I’m looking forward to my leftovers lunch tomorrow too!

Slow Cooker Vegan Lentil Parsnip Soup

  • 2 cups French Lentils
  • 6 cups Filtered Water
  • 1/2 Onion, minced
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbl. Better than Bouillon no chicken flavor
  • 2 Parsnips, minced
  • 3 Bay Leaves
  • 2 tsp. Thyme, dried
  • 2 tsp. Tarragon, dried
  • Salt and Pepper to taste – add right before serving

Optional Step: In a saute pan add 1 tsp. olive oil and cook onions until translucent over medium-low heat, add garlic and saute 1 minute more. You can skip this step and put raw onion and garlic straight into the slow cooker if you’re running short on time. Sauteing as a nice mellow flavor if you have the chance to do it.

Throw everything except salt and pepper into the crockpot and cook on low for 8 – 10 hours.  Add salt and pepper before serving.

  3. Finally using my slow cooker. No parsnips so I am using carrots. I used a low salt veggie bouillion. I finally opened my cuisinart slow cooker 3 1/2 quart. Smaller than I thought, but cute. However it comes out I am going to work on using this at least twice a week to make healthy soups. That is one of my new year goals.
