Sorry, I have no pictures this time. But this soup was so good, and took me (literally) about 15 minutes to prepare. Enjoy!
Slow Cooker Wild Rice and Leek Soup
(In the bowl of a slow cooker...)
First, spray the inside with cooking spray, just in case. Then add:
1 cup wild rice
1 cup chopped carrots
2 chopped leeks (or 1 1/2 if yours is small like mine)
1 cup chopped mushrooms
2 vegetable bouillion cubes
1/2 cup french lentils (the brown ones that don't fall apart)
1/2 cup chopped kale
Add enough water to cover all of the ingredients. Set on "low" for around 7 hours. (I did "high" for 2 hours, and "low" for 3 since I got started a bit late.) You might want to stir it once or twice, just to make sure that everything gets cooked (I'm talking to you here, kale!). You may also need to add more water, just because the rice and lentils soak up a lot of it; around 2 cups or so throughout the cooking time.
