I substituted Bulgar Wheat for the hamburger in mine to make it vegetarian and we loved this!

Easy recipe to throw together in the morning, put it all in the crock pot and let it simmer throughout the day. I substituted red beans for the lentils and I did add 2 extra cups of beef broth to make it soupier.

Great recipe! It was easy to follow and taste great. I browned the onions and garlic first, then browned the ground beef, and then added in the other ingredents. I mixed everything well before placing it into the crock pot. Using the crock pot bag liners made clean up so easy.

This was so good and simple recipe and all the ingredients I had in my pantry. The lentils almost melt and map the soup creamy and thick. I made a few adjustments, I used chicken sausage, and low sodium chicken stock instead of water and bullion. This way I could control the salt and choose the flavors. This will definitely be a regular staple now!

This was fabulous and super easy. I left out the tomatoes and ended up needing a bit more water to make it more soup like and less stew like. I cooked it on high for 4 hours and thought it was about right. Definately a keeper!

I had a crazy day coming at me and this recipe was just what I needed. I didn't have dried lentils, so I used 2 cans of kidney beans which made my soup more brothy. I followed the rest of the ingredients and cooked on low for 8 hours. Then I picked up some fresh buns on the way home and dinner was served. It fed our family of 4 with no leftovers. Thank you for an easy and healthy recipe!

Very quick and cheap to make, nutritious and a good way to use up things in your fridge. I had some left over brown rice so added a bit more water towards the end of cooking and threw the rice in. Looking forward to leftovers tomorrow!

This was so easy and truly a clean out the cupboards soup. I had one carrot, so I added a few small potatoes, no beef bouillon, so I used chicken broth, running low on spices, so ended up using italian seasoned canned tomatoes. Even with these changes, it was great. My 2 yr old ate licked her bowl clean.

This was a hit at our house. It went well with corn muffins and carrot/celery sticks after a long day of work. I goofed and poured in yellow split peas before I realized what I had done. Oh well, it was yummy and very filling - and I'll certainly have to try it with lentils too. Thanks Brooke the Cook in WI for another great recipe. Made for ZWT5.
