From EatingWell:  January/February 2013

Like most soups, this Moroccan lentil soup recipe gets better with time as the complex seasonings have time to develop. Make it a day ahead if you can—this easy slow cooker/crock pot recipe variation makes it a cinch to get the soup cooking while you do other things.

12 servings, about 1 1/4 cups each | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 4 1/2-5 1/2 hours on High or 8 1/2 to 10 1/2 hours on Low

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Combine onions, carrots, garlic, oil, cumin, coriander, turmeric, cinnamon and pepper in a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Add broth, water, cauliflower, lentils, tomatoes and tomato paste and stir until well combined.
  2. Cover and cook until the lentils are tender, 4 to 5 hours on High or 8 to 10 hours on Low.
  3. During the last 30 minutes of cooking, stir in spinach. Just before serving, stir in cilantro and lemon juice.
