Lentil Tortilla Soup
Now that the weather in Southern California is finally starting to cool down, I’m beyond ready to check things off of our family’s fall bucket list. For me, I absolutely love all fall activities plus creating new recipes for our family – especially soups that warm everyone up on a brisk day.
So today, I’m sharing my newest fall recipe, Lentil Tortilla Soup. This soup is hearty and just so happens to be vegan. I’ve been working on perfecting it so that it’s super easy for us busy moms to make – especially with the help of our Crockpot™ MyTime™ 6-QT. It’s a new programmer slow cooker that automatically adjusts the cooking cycle based on when you want to eat. All you need to do is add the ingredients, set your meal time and the slow cooker does the rest! Now how amazing is that?
And speaking of our new Crockpot™ MyTime™, did you know it’s Crocktober? It’s the official kick-off to the Crockpot™ cooking season and we’re here for it!
