Delish Vegetable Lentil Soup in the Crock Pot

I have tried a lot of lentil soup recipes and this is my new favorite!  I love just throwing in a bunch of leftover veggies and having a delicious soup by dinner time!

Vegetable Lentil Soup

3 carrots chopped
1 sweet potatoe chopped into small cubes
1 chopped white onion
3 cloves of garlic, pressed
3 celery stalks chopped
2 cups of vegetable stock

1 tsp dried thyme

Put all the ingredients into the crock pot, low for about 8 hours or hi for about 4 hours.  Check the lentils and sweet potatoes for doneness. 

Before serving add 2 cups of chopped kale. Cook for about 5-10 minutes.  Salt and pepper to taste.
