Slow Cooker Lentil & Sausage Soup

The weather is slightly gloomy today. I am reserving the right to enjoy a lazy day indoors. Pajamas, heater, candles, an episode or two of Top Chef, and slow cooker soup.

This lentil & sausage soup is so easy. I prepped the ingredients last night, and set the slow cooker to simmer all night. By morning, our house smelled wonderful and we had soup to warm us up. The soup is a complete meal that’s high in protein, fiber, and nutritious vegetables.

Enjoy a lazy day if you can, friends.
