Simple Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Lentil Soup

This soup is a delicious vegan recipe, but it can be altered easily to suit the cook’s tastes.  Beef or chicken stock can be substituted for the water.  Pieces of ham can be added for a delicious option.  Another tasty addition is a dollop of sour cream or Greek yogurt, which is still vegetarian but not vegan.

Tips

When chopping vegetables, cut round veggies, like carrots and onions, in half and place the flat side down on the cutting board.  No more trouble with vegetables rolling around the cutting board.

If celery is wilted, freshen it up by cutting the base and putting it in cold water.  The celery will take up the water and be crisp again.

New crock pots cook food faster than older crock pots.
