This slow cooker lentil and brown rice soup has preserved lemons and garlic sausage to make it an amazingly flavorful version of slow cooker lentil soup!
Lentil soup is one of those dishes I’d never get tired of and I’m always interested in trying a new slow cooker lentil soup recipe. This Slow Cooker Lentil and Brown Rice Soup with Preserved Lemons and Garlic Sausage from The Perfect Pantry sounds like it’s loaded with flavor with onions, garlic, soy sauce, preserved lemons, and chicken garlic sausage bumping up the flavor of the lentils and brown rice. If you don’t have preserved lemons, there’s a link in the recipe for how to make them or just leave them out if that seems like too much trouble!

I bet you’ll love this Slow Cooker Thai Chicken for an easy dinner. These Thai-flavored Chicken Thighs may bit be authentically Thai, but they’re delicious and use ingredients you probably keep on hand!
There’s definitely a pun intended in the naming of these Chicken Thais from Dinner with Julie, and I think it’s a charming name for a dish where chicken thighs are cooked in the CrockPot in a spicy sauce with Thai-inspired flavors. This simple recipe only has six ingredients, and Julie says it was so good that her parents stopped by and almost devoured all the leftovers, even though they were cold!
You can see in the photo that Julie was serving this with rice, but if you wanted to serve this tasty chicken with cauliflower rice, it could even be a delicious low-carb meal!
Ingredients for this CrockPot Recipe:
- Skinless chicken thighs
- peanut butter
- soy sauce
