Freezer Meal Detox Crockpot Lentil Soup – a nourishing and easy soup recipe made with onions, garlic, carrots, kale, olive oil, squash, and lentils. Vegan / vegetarian / gluten free and SUPER delicious!




  • 2 cups chopped butternut squashfresh or frozen
  • 2 cups mirepoixfresh or frozen
  • 12 cups chopped potatoesfresh or frozen
  • 1 cup uncooked brown lentils
  • 3 cloves garlicminced
  • 1 teaspoon herbes de Provence (or other spices you like)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (more to taste)
  • 45 cups vegetable or chicken broth


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 12 cups kale, finely chopped


INSTANT POT: From frozen, 15 minutes on high pressure + 10 minutes natural release.

SLOW COOKER: From frozen, 6 hours on high.

FINAL STEP: Stir in olive oil and kale. (If you made this in the Instant Pot, some of the vegetables should break down just enough to make the soup creamy! If you made this in the slow cooker, blend a little bit of the soup with the olive oil to make a creamy base.) Finish with a splash of lemon juice or red wine vinegar.
