Crock Pot Lentil Soup with Kale

January 16, 2014

Now that it's cold outside, how would you like a bowl of hot soup?  This soup is so easy to make in the crockpot and will be ready by dinner time.

I would love to share with you the recipe for this healthy and delicious soup, it's become a family favorite in my house.


1 - 16 oz. package Goya Red Lentils - rinsed with water

2 red potatoes - peeled & chopped
1 small onion - chopped
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon olive oil

  1. I love soup on cold days. Have never tried this one though. Sounds good!

  2. Hi Julie,

    Yours is the second blog today where the featured recipe is lentil soup! Being Greek, I've been enjoying this soup for 48 years and besides being rich in iron, it is tasty and perfect for a cold winter's day! We make ours with carrots and celery and season with bay leaf, in addition to salt and pepper, instead of kale, and of course, lots of onion and garlic and tomato, like yours.

    Have a great week!


  3. I must say that I have never tried a soup like this before - it sounds quite good! And I am becoming a fan of Kale so I may have to try this sometime soon. Thanks for sharing, Julie! Hugs to you!

  4. Mmmm that soup does look good! I bought my husband a crock pot a year ago for Christmas (he makes supper in our house). We've been enjoying different dishes, but don't use it nearly enough. I'll have to keep this recipe to try as we all love soups here ... our favourite is butternut squash soup. Thanks for sharing Julie! Wendy x

  5. I really enjoy making soup, thanks for this recipe!

  6. I like that it's got Kale, that's a new trend I really like to see in recipes. :)

  7. Have you been reading my mind Julie? I've been thinking about soup, my crockpot and kale! Thanks!!

  8. I have never used Kale in a soup but love to use spinach so I am sure the kids will still eat it. My favorite soup is split pea. Thanks for linking up to Friday frenzy this week. see you next week with more great recipes and crafts.

  16. Good Morning Julie, Do you know, I have never made a soup in a slow cooker... that is something I am going to have to remedy. I make a similar soup, but I add spinach, but I am going to ring the changes and try kale for a change.

  22. Hi Julie,
    Aren't crock pots grand? I just love being able to toss some veggies and lentil beans in a pot, set it and forget it! Lentil soup is my favorite cold weather indulgence and I love the ingredients in your recipe. I substitute bouillon with turmeric or curry powder when I make mine and I love to add the chewy texture of mushrooms. Thank you so much for sharing this healthy and delicious soup recipe at the Plant-Based Potluck Party Blog Hop! I sincerely appreciate it!
