Indian lentil soup
If you like a little spice in your life, you will love this easy lentil soup recipe.
Place the ingredients in your slow cooker in the morning, throw in some spinach and coconut milk when you get home from work and there you have it!
I'm always looking for ways to add leafy greens to our family meals. This soup easily welcomes spinach but I have used kale, swiss chard and beet greens.
