Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Rinse and drain lentils. In a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker combine lentils, squash, broth, water, carrots, celery, onion, garlic, and garam masala.

  • Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 9 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 4-1/2 hours (see Tip).


Tip: For easy cleanup: Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
