This recipe is for any caregiver or busy family on the go! The combination of the root veggies with the savoy lentils, is a winner. The only hard part is the cutting of vegetables for a half hour then throw in the Crockpot.

Salt to taste
2 medium carrots, diced
1 1/2 cups brown or green lentils, rinsed
6 cups of low sodium veggie stock
2 medium-size sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 handful of spinach or baby kale
Cut all vegetables and add into your crockpot, add stock, tomato paste and desired spices/ salt.
Leave on high heat for 5-6 hours. Serves 6 to 8 people. Freezes great up to 6 months.
