    About this recipe: Ever since becoming a mum, I've realised how precious time is! So I've been taking a lot of my traditional Greek recipes and adapting them for the slow cooker. Greek lentil soup, or Fakes, is a natural option for slow cooking and my husband and I think it tastes better than when made on the stove. Baby loves it, too!

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 500g brown lentils
    • 100ml olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons tomato puree
    • 3 to 4 carrots, sliced
    • 1 large red onion, grated
    • 1 to 2 cloves garlic, peeled
    • 2 teaspoons dried Greek oregano
    • 2 bay leaves
    • salt and pepper to taste

    1. Place lentils in a medium saucepan, cover with water and bring to the boil. Boil for 10 minutes, then drain well and add to the slow cooker.
    2. Add all remaining ingredients to slow cooker and cover with approximately 1.5 litres of water. Cover and set slow cooker to Low for 6 to 8 hours.

    Note

    Do not skip the step of pre-boiling the lentils; if you don't do this, your lentil soup will turn out like sludge.
