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!
Do not skip the step of pre-boiling the lentils; if you don't do this, your lentil soup will turn out like sludge.
I had read the previous comment about the soup being bland so I added some extra Oregano and some Italian Seasoning (didn’t have any Greek Seasoning). I added a tin of crushed tomatoes to give it some extra veg and then used Vegetable Stock instead of water. It still turned out bland. - 17 Feb 2019 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
