Wonderful, filling soup. Used a crockpot that could double on the stovetop to saute meat with onion, carrots, celery, & spices, then put it onto it's hotplate. Doing this made for wonderful flavor of the cooked meat and veggies staying in the pot, so no loss of flavor. Added 12 cups homemade chicken broth , no water, for a richer taste. Glad I used this much broth since the lentils and brown rice absorbed a lot of liquid. Added 1/2 a butternut squash for maximum vitamins during the last hour of cooking in the crockpot. Didn't have fresh spinach so used frozen. The leftovers are terrific and but needed some more liquid so in went a can of broth. Served with homemade onion bread. Will definitely make this again. Very easy and all ingredients were on hand. This is always a plus for working women. A crockpot and pressure cooker are life savers for nutritious meals.
