Brrrr…Soup Weather Has Returned!

slow cooker soup 007

I don’t know about where you are, but here in Interior BC it’s COLD again! ūüė¶

It was down to 1C late afternoon yesterday. For here, at this time of year, that is very cold.

I’m making a lot of soups as we wait out this current weather.

This is one: Slow Cooker Red Lentil, Chickpea and Coconut Soup, ¬†that I found over at the Kitchen Treaty blog. It’s nice and hearty. Full of healthy and delish ingredients and made in the slow-cooker. Can’t get much better than that.

Click through for the full recipe and to see another photo of this soup.

My photo above ¬†is an “action shot”.¬†¬†Look closely, you can see the steam rising and the¬†soup bubbling. ūüėČ

A few minor changes I made:

-I used 2 T. olive oil instead of butter

–¬†3 C. of pre-cooked chickpeas instead of canned type. Next time I’d cut back on the chickpeas, 2- 2 1/2 C. would be plenty IMO.

-I cooked soup on HIGH for 4 hours, instead of on LOW as the recipe is written.

Hope you enjoy the recipe, stay warm and let’s¬†hope that SPRING arrives to stay and¬†soon!

PS: How’s your weather and what’s your¬†favorite soup?
