This crockpot lentil soup is a dump-and-go recipe that’s easy to make but loaded with flavor! You can even make it vegan if you wish by simply replacing chicken stock with vegetable stock!

I love serving it with cheesy garlic bread for a complete lunch or dinner meal.

I recently made this broccoli cheese soup, and a lot of you requested more soup recipes! This lentil soup is simply amazing! I was so shocked at how delicious it turned out, and the lentils cooked perfectly.

INGREDIENT NOTES

See the recipe card below for ingredient quantities and complete instructions.

  • Lentils – I used 16 ounces of dried lentils.
  • Carrots – Make sure to cut them into small pieces so they cook perfectly!
  • Cumin – Optional but adds great flavor!
  • Coconut Milk – I love the flavor and texture it adds, I highly recommend adding it!
  • Chicken Stock – Any stock will work! Use vegetable stock for vegan lentil soup.

HOW TO MAKE IT

  • Place all of the ingredients in your crockpot, cover, and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 6-7 hours.
  • Once the cooking time is up, season generously with Kosher salt and give it a good stir. Serve with parmesan cheese, if desired, and enjoy!

TOP TIPS

  • Make sure your crockpot is plugged in! I’ve made that mistake plenty of times.
  • Season the lentil soup with lots of Kosher salt once it’s done cooking. If you don’t season it generously with salt, it will turn out super bland.
  • The longer this soup sits, the thicker it will become, but you can add more broth to thin it out.
  • Want to make it spicy? Add cayenne pepper!
  • I love serving it with bread, but this also goes great with white rice.
  • Feel free to throw in some crispy bacon or ham for extra flavor.

STORAGE

Have leftovers? Allow them to cool completely, then transfer them to an air-tight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
