Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (235 votes)

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.

Great slow cooker soup recipe

I used homemade stock so it really needed salt but it was otherwise fabulous. My 9 mo is eating it for lunch right now. It's even better the next day.

Love that nothing has to be precooked, it just all goes in the slow cooker. Fabulous flavor.

Great base to customize to your liking

Made only 1/2 recipe to try it for the first time. Did it on the stove, and after heating the spices in oil at start of cooking, thought it was going to be really flavorful. After adding the rest of ingredients and simmering, found it to be pretty bland.

For 1/2 recipe (4 cups liquid), ended up using:
- 1.25 tsp cumin
- 3/4 tsp coriander
- 3/4 tsp turmeric
- 3/16 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/8 tsp paprika
- salt to taste
Added just the right amount of spice, and a few of us added a little more "heat" at the table.
Would be great to add: chickpeas; zucchini; kale; browned ground turkey, chicken or lamb; couscous, barley or whatever grains - this is a great dish to use up odds and ends in your pantry or fridge :)

great way to use up vegies, grains, beans, etc

Bland, Bitter Vegetable Soup

I love Eating Well recipes, and I really wanted to like this soup. I love lentils, turmeric & cumin, and all the vegetables in this recipe...but this just wound up very bland and even a litle bitter. It was almost inedible. Maybe it was lacking salt? I doctored it up with some salt, pepper, and curry powder, and so our leftovers are at least edible now!
