Before kids, I worked all the time and did not cook often. When I had my first son and became a stay at home mom, I cooked all the time. Now with 3 kids I do not cook a lot. We eat lots of sandwiches, fruit, and yes, I will admit, take out. One thing I have used throughout the years is my crock pot. It was perfect to load up with yummy food when I worked and come home to dinner ready. It came in handy to try new meals when I just had one kid. Now it is one of the few ways I cook at my house while I chase the kids around and do homework and laundry.
This recipe for Lentil and Sausage Soup is one of my go to recipes. It is quick and easy and 4 out of 5 family members eat it. That is a win at my house.
What I used:
bag of green lentils
fresh gold potatoes
soy sauce (This was back up. I prefer Worcestershire sauce but was out)
What I did:
I added chicken broth to the crock pot. I rinsed the lentils and then added them. You want to make sure the beans are covered by broth. If they are not add a little water. Add frozen or fresh carrots and potatoes. I then take and add garlic powder and soy sauce to the mix. Cut up sausage and add that in too. I wait until the soup is finished to add salt to each individuals bowl. I cook on high for 6 hours or until beans are soft.
Quick, easy, and yummy dinner. I hope you and yours can enjoy this too.
