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! šŸ˜¦

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, Ā 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 Ā is an “action shot”.Ā Ā Look closely, you can see the steam rising and theĀ soup bubbling. šŸ˜‰

A few minor changes I made:

-I used 2 T. olive oil instead of butter

–Ā 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.

-IĀ 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’sĀ hope that SPRING arrives to stay andĀ soon!

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