Tonight’s Pinterest-inspired dish was Yellow Lentil and Spinach Slow Cooker Soup, but my soup was not nearly as pretty as the picture. I had to use brown lentils instead of yellow, so my soup was brown, and I used broccoli instead of spinach. I also cooked mine on the stovetop instead of in the slow cooker, and added some chili. Hence, Indian-spiced lentil and Broccoli Soup. Hop over to her blog if you want the slow cooker instructions.
I still have kale I could have used in place of the spinach, but not only did the broccoli need to be used, I think my husband is getting tired of me throwing kale into absolutely everything! If you like Indian Dhal you will like this soup.
I made some half-whole-wheat flatbreads to go with the soup, and I’ll post the recipe below; they were so easy! ALMOST as good as restaurant Naan, but not quite. Still working on finding the best Naan method! I you have one, please share it in the comments!
