Curried Lentil Soup

This is a good crockpot recipe that I thought  would be good to share.   Everyone seems to be so busy and having dinner made when you get home is so nice and often saves us from calling for pizza. Of course, I had to change it a little but it is vegan if you don’t garnish with feta, so it works for potlucks, too.

 Curried Lentil Soup
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion – diced
2 cloves garlic  -minced
2 medium carrots – diced
1 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
1/4 cup tomato paste
1 cup red lentils (uncooked)
1/4 cup brown rice (uncooked)
7 cups vegetable stock or garlic broth
1 jar diced tomatoes with juice
1-2 Tablespoons Curry powder
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp pepper
salt to taste
feta cheese to garnish

Heat oil in a fry pan and saute onions and garlic until the begin to brown.  Add mushrooms and carrots and saute for 5 minutes.

Put the veggies in a crockpot with the rest of the ingredients and cook for six hours on high heat or on low overnight.
