It was okay, but my family doesn't like to settle for okay, so after tasting the soup -- about halfway through -- I added 1 chopped fresh sweet red bell pepper, 3 small hot pepperoncini peppers from a jar, 1 teaspoon ground mustard, and 1 cup finely chopped Chinese cabbage (bok choy) including the stalks. It was very tasty, very filling, and I will certainly make it again!

I found this to be incredibly bland. Hot sauce helped.

Nice, but boring. I add garlic instead of onion, a small bag of mixed vegetables and a box of frozen chopped greens. Use beef base instead of veggie broth and I add a bone for the dog. Lentils are a great dried bean for the slow cooker. I make a pot on Saturday for my lunch the next week. Healthy and easy to make.

I added olive oil, salt, pepper and chicken stock. I garnished it with freshly grated parmesan and it was delicious! Everyone loved it and couldn't believe how easy it was!

Slightly Bland But a Good Base September 02, 2013

This recipe was easy to make but it came out a little bland. About two hours into the cooking, I added about a cup of beef broth, a pound of Italian sausage, 2 tablespoons of salt, a dash of garlic powder and crushed red pepper, and parsley. After adding all that, it was pretty good! The lentils could have been a little softer though so next time I'll put it on high for 5 hours.
