Dinner Tonight: Spiced Butternut Lentil Soup

A handful of ingredients tossed into a slow cooker in the morning yields a delicious and healthy vegetarian soup for dinner. Teresa Stebbins submitted this easy recipe for Spiced Butternut Lentil Soup; when served with salad and bread, she writes, it makes a complete meal. “This time of year,” she writes, “one of our favorite meals is soup.” If you’re more of a carnivore, feel free to use chicken stock and maybe a nice ham bone.

Spiced Butternut Lentil Soup

1 cup lentils

2½ cups diced butternut squash

½ cup diced carrot

½ cup diced celery

½ cup diced onion

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoon garam masala

4 cups vegetable broth

Put all ingredients into a slow cooker. Cook for several hours.

— Teresa Stebbins
