Spinach, Lentil and Sweet Potato Slow Cooker Soup - Gluten-free and Vegan

This post is part of my ongoing restricted diets series with the Free People Blog BLDG 25.

Since it seems this winter is hanging on until the bitter end for a lot of folks this year, I decided it was the perfect opportunity for one last comforting winter meal, like this simple to make spinach, lentil and sweet potato slow cooker soup

OK, sure, I am in California and our idea of winter weather is the low 60s and some rain, but even with our (not so) cooler than usual winter weather — I want hot, comforting foods, that literally feel like a warm hug with every spoonful.

This simple-to-make soup is something you can prep in the morning before work and by the time you get home your dinner is hot, steamy and just ready and waiting for you. Some folks prefer to sauté vegetables like the onion, garlic, leeks, celery etc before adding them to the slow cooker, but to me it defeats the purpose. With a soup recipe like this one, I go for just dumping it all in and letting the slow cooker do its job. This soup is no-fuss and no-frills but it’s hearty, delicious and so satisfying.
