Kale Lentil Crockpot Soup

Kale Lentil Crockpot Soup Recipe

Ok, let's face it, sometimes preparing for a healthy meal can feel like a lot of work! Whether it's a gloomy day outside or your day is full of obligations, it isn't always easy to spend time in the kitchen making healthy meals. For those days, I like to call on my old friend the crockpot. It's the lazy/busy/exhausted woman's best friend.

This recipe is easy. It's also really nourishing! It uses lots of vegetables, lentils and white beans. And to make things REALLY easy for myself (like I said, super lazy/busy/exhausted), I use frozen squash (that's already chopped and ready to go), and canned lentils and white beans. This keeps the prep time to a minimum.

You can quickly prep this meal earlier in the day by tossing all ingredients in the crockpot and then turning it on a few hours before dinner.

Right before you eat, you'll want to toss in the kale and season with salt and pepper. I served this soup with warm crisp bread!
