1 3/4 cup red lentils
1 med onion (chopped)
2 carrots (chopped)
9 cups of chicken or vegetable broth
1 1/2 Tbsp minced garlic
1 stick of butter
2 Tbsp curry powder
Combine all ingredients in the slow cooker and cook until the lentils have disintegrated. Approximately 4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low. Enjoy as soup or serve over rice.
**Don't try and substitute green lentils for the red ones. The texture will not come out right if you do. I have trouble finding red lentils at generic grocery stores. However, stores like Sprouts or Wholefoods carry them in their bulk food section.
