Baby Lentils

As in lentils for baby to eat.  She gobbled them up.  So did I.  I just purchased a slow cooker and need to catalog my experiences so that I can repeat successes.  I originally got into lentils when making Lentil Burgers for my son a few years ago.  They were a huge hit, but also a huge effort. While W does like her finger food, she’s also still amenable to the spooned stuff so I thought I’d try a soupy version and adapt if it got rejected.  No need!  Enjoy.

I really need to add to my crockpot/slow cooker repertoire so send me your recipes if you have good ones.  Thanks!
