  • 1 pinch Himalayan sea salt or Celtic sea salt to taste
  • 1 pinch Black pepper fresh ground
  • 2 cups yellow onions large, diced, option – use fennel bulb or leek instead
  • 1 cup red lentils soak in water while preparing the other veggies and rinse prior to adding to crock pot
  • 1 lb carrots (approximately 5) peeled and cut into large pieces
  • 1 lb parsnips (approximately 4-5) peeled and cut into large pieces

  4. Cook covered until all veggies are easily pierced with a fork – anywhere from 1-5 hours – depending on your crockpot and the size of the veggies.
