Whip up this delicious vegetarian comfort food with zero effort at all! Simply break out your slow cooker and let dinner make itself!
This recipe serves approx. 6 large portions or 10 side-dish sized servings. Recipe yield: 10 cups.
* Prefer to used dried lentils? Simply add 1 cup of raw dried lentils to your crock-pot and increase the amount of tomato sauce used to two 15 oz cans total of sauce, plus add 1/2 cup of veggie broth to the mix. The lentils will soak up the extra liquid as it cooks.
** You can use one extra large russet potato for this dish or go with two smaller russet potatoes. I've also made this with Yukon gold potatoes and it works great! You'll want to aim for 2-3 cups of diced potato total.
Looking to amp up the flavors even more? I've added a spoonful or so of curry powder to these luscious lentils and LOVED IT! It's also crazy delicious with Thai red curry paste too.
