Listed ingredients will not fit in a 4qt cooker. Fortunately, I have a larger one to transfer it into. Cooking now so haven't tasted yet, but expect it to be flavorful and very tasty.

Well, I had to assume this would be a winner of a recipe since it was from Sue Lau! I cooked it on high for about 6 hours to perfection. Followed the recipe as written, but cut it in half. My ham was not very salty, so I actually had to add salt after cooking. I also added a little 21 Seasoning Salute from Trader Joes at the end. VERY nice lentil soup, Sue! Thanks for posting. My house smells WONDERFUL.

Very easy to make and I switched out 1/2 of the lentils with yellow split peas. I wanted red lentils, but couldn't find them locally. I found the soup very salty, and it could have been me. I added a meaty smoked ham hock to the crock pot for additional flavor and probably should have added no salt whatsoever. I threw a few cut up potatoes near the end of cooking time to try and soak up some of the salt, but ended up throwing the batch out. I'm making another batch tomorrow . . .

This was wonderful! I didn't add the diced tomatoes, I was out. I did add a meaty ham bone, chicken bouillon, ham bouillon and 1 tsp of liquid smoke. My husband had 3 bowls. Thanks for posting!

This is very good soup. It is also extremely filling. I omitted the thyme and red pepper flakes and used chicken broth in place of the water. We really liked it and is was very easy to make too. Thanks for the recipe.

I made this today on the stove top as I don't own a crock pot. I cooked it for 1 1/2 hours and it's perfect. I used red lentils and grated my carrots, so it looks quite dirrerent to Sue's photo but I bet it tastes pretty similar. I especially loved the garlic, thyme and tomatoes in this-it smelled fantastic as it cooked. I used a meaty ham bone and removed the meat when it cooled, then returned it to the soup.
