RICE AND LENTIL SOUP (Slow-Cooker)

Lentil soup is the one of the oldest soups in the book… literally.  And when you take a look at the nutrients in lentils you will definitely understand why.

Lentils are low in calories and high in protein. They are rich with Vitamin-B, iron, potassium, fiber, and many other nutrients that help our bodies fight infection and stay healthy.  They help boost metabolism, lower blood pressure, help to control diabetes, as well as preventing cellular damage.  Lentil soup and other lentil dishes will help to fill you up without all the fat and calories.  The list of benefits from lentils is indeed impressive.

If you purchase this heart-healthy legume in its dried state, they will even stay fresh and ready to use for up to a year when stored properly.  I store my dried legume in sealed glass jars for maximum freshness.   If you weren’t overly impressed with lentils before, you should definitely try this recipe to change your mind.  Lentils (and particularly this lovely Rice and Lentil Soup) is a great recipe to integrate into your diet for all around healthy and clean eating.
