The lentils make the soup by adding lots of protein and fiber!  Lentils, along with beans, dry peas and chickpeas, all fall under the category of pulses.

Chunky Vegetable Soup

Fall is coming and I am going to start posting more soup recipes.  Starting with this Chunky Vegetable Soup.  I made this in the slow cooker and it couldn’t have been easier!  I used the slow cooker instead of the pressure cooker because this makes a big batch.  I didn’t think I could fit the whole thing in my pressure cooker.

I love using the slow cooker because the soup can cook even while you are not home.  In fact, when we made this, we left the house for most of the day and came home to a delicious smell.  It was making my mouth water.

As it’s written, this healthy soup recipe is vegan, gluten free, paleo and oil free.  If you wanted to make it more hearty, I think adding kidney beans or brown lentils may be nice additions.

Creamy Cauliflower Potato Soup

Cauliflower is just one of those things I don’t do enough with.  It is so healthy and I really want to try and incorporate more into my diet.  One of my favorite things to make with cauliflower is cauliflower popcorn.  Now was about time to make a cauliflower potato soup.  The cauliflower adds a nice creamy texture without adding a lot of calories.
