Crockpot lentil soup with sausage

Delicious Slow Cooker Lentil Soup with Sausage

I love this crockpot lentil soup with sausage recipe! It’s delicious, hearty, and easy to make! The fact that I can have it all prepped and ready to cook in 10-minutes is just so amazing. After it’s prepped I just throw it into my crockpot and wait for my delicious meal to be ready. I love it!

I always like to make extra of this recipe too because it’s so easy to freeze the leftovers. I then typically just reheat it in the microwave if I’m needing a quick dinner!


One of the ingredients in this recipe is chicken broth. If you’d like to save some money, we recommend making your own chicken broth at home using this fat-free chicken broth recipe.
