    I found this recipe when joining a crockpot recipe group on yahoo. Have not made this yet but it sounds very good especially with the addition of the spinach. A great idea for those cold winter days!

      This was pretty decent; a bit bland for our tastes but easily fixable. My wife and I ate it the first night after following the recipe precisely, save for cutting the amount of spinach. The flavor improves as do many soups after a night in the 'fridge. It's amazing how much a 15 oz. can of diced tomatoes improved the flavor. I also added Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and at the very end, additional salt to taste. I'm sorry I didn't measure the additions or I'd include them for anyone who'd want them. Next time I'll quantify the additions for anyone who might find them helpful. The 4 stars is for the recipe as written, with the the changes, I'd give it 5 stars. Of course, everyone perceives tastes differently and I'm sure others would prefer the recipe as written. Thanks for posting this.

      Excellent & easy! I used a meaty ham bone that was left over/frozen from our Easter dinner. Took 4 hours in the crock pot. Our family eats of lot of lentil beans - our toddler daughter loves them - so this was nice change up on my usual lentil bean soup. I did add half a tablespoon of ginger paste (we liked spice!) and it didn't overwhelm the dish at all. I'm Mexican so we use lemon as a garnish to a lot of our soups/stews - so here it was a welcomed garnish to the soup. It was tasty, flavorful & warm on one of the last rainy nights in a Southern CA spring! Thanks for sharing!

      Good way to use some leftover ham. If I made it again, I'd spice it up a little with the suggestions below (which I should have read BEFORE I made it).
