Ah, soup season. A time to indulge in comforting, warm stews while binge watching your favorite Netflix show! Soups are also a wonderful “make it once” and “eat it all week” solution. Throw a slow cooker/ crock pot/ pressure cooker recipe into the mix and your job just got even easier (if that was possible)! I love making a huge batch of soup in my crock-pot on Sunday evenings, and my ridiculously easy Crock-Pot Red Lentil Potato Soup does not disappoint.
The ingredient list isn’t very long, with just a handful of vegetables, garlic, lentils and then some seasoning. Don’t let it fool you. This soup packs a serious flavor punch! I really like adding a touch of cayenne to give the after taste a little bite, but even without the heat, the flavor is wonderfully bold. Plus, this recipe simply couldn’t be easier. Simply toss the ingredients in your crock-pot and go. Voila!
Cheers & happy eating!

Soup season has officially started. There is a chill in the air, the leaves are falling, the sweaters are out, and soup is on the menu. Who doesn’t love a big bowl of comforting, warm soup?
Soup is one of the easiest things you can make for dinner. Better yet – make a big vat on Sunday and eat it all week long! From thick and creamy to vegetable-chunky, soup is so versatile, yet so simple.
Just chop up your veggies, gather other ingredients, mix it all in your slow cooker or on the stove and you’re basically done.
Today I’m sharing one of my go to soup recipes for the fall. It’s a hearty, spicy vegan lentil stew. The flavors are mix of sweet and savory, with just a hint of heat. You’ll be sure to make this a staple in no time. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
Happy cooking! Cheers!

So this week I decided to adapt another recipe from Thug Kitchen: The Official Cookbook: Eat Like You Give a F*ck. (Read my review of the Chick Pea and Dumpling Soup here). I’m Italian so of course I’ve had my fair share of wedding soup. However, I don’t think I had tasted it since I stopped eating meat years and years ago. After enjoying this recipe, I can say that I missed that flavor! It’s warm, a little salty, and completely satisfying on chilly evenings.
The soup is basically a mix of cannelloni bean ‘balls,’ orzo, kale, celery, carrots, onion, spices, and vegetable broth. Simple as that! Below you’ll find my adapted version of the recipe, as well as, as my commentary on making this dish. Enjoy!
