Slow Cooker Savvy: Moroccan Lentil Soup

Moroccan Lentil Soup 2This soup is thick, delicious and nutritious, and it’s spices are especially warming on a cold winter day. Put it on in the morning and revel in its warmth and fragrance after a  day of snowshoeing, skiing or sledding. Vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free, it’s also suitable for any cleanse or new eating habits (I hate the word “diet!”) you may be testing in the new year.

  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/2 c. carrots, diced
  • 1/2 c. celery, chopped
  • 1 (14. oz.) can fire roasted diced tomatoes

  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
  • 1 1/2 tsp. coriander
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne
