French Lentil Rice Soup by Favorite Brand Name Recipes

  • 6 cups chicken broth or 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup lentils, picked over and rinsed
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and finely diced
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 celery ribs, finely diced
  • 3 tablespoons uncooked white rice
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  1. Stir together the broth, lentils, carrots, onion, celery, rice, garlic, herbes de Provence, salt and pepper in a slow cooker.  Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours.  Remove 1 1/2 cups soup and puree in a food blender or with an immersion blender until almost smooth.  Stir pureed soup back into the slow cooker.

Great lentil soup that you don’t have to fuss over.  Leftovers aren’t awesome so only make what you can eat for one meal.
