Lentil Soup Recipe

What could be more satisfying on a dreary winter night than a hot bowl of soup?
Lentils are wholesome, economical, vitamin packed, and very satisfying.
Caution: lentils are legumes. Cross reactivity to chickpeas and peas is possible.
Peanuts are legumes as well but cross reactivity with lentils is not as common.
This recipe is super easy. Just throw all ingredients in the crockpot (slowcooker) and go about your day.

Crockpot Lentil Soup
1 16oz bag of dried lentils (rinsed)
1 onion(diced) and sauteed in olive oil
3 stalks celery (diced)
2 quarts water (or vegetable broth)
*cumin, curry, tumeric, paprika,black pepper, parsley flakes
*salt, pepper (season to taste)

Add all ingredients in to crockpot and cook for atleast 6 hrs (3 hrs on high and 3 hrs on low)
This soup just gets better the longer you cook it.
