Who put Peanut butter in my Soup…

African (inspired)  SPICY  Lentil Soup …. with Peanut Butter,  Brown Rice, and Lentils !   

What you need: 
1 medium yellow onion, chopped in small pieces
1/4 cup sliced green onion/scallion (just the green part)
2  bell peppers, seeds removed and chopped into 1/2 inch pieces – I used one red , one green
1 Tbsp minced garlic ( I used minced garlic from a jar )
2  14 oz. can diced tomatoes with juice
8 cups vegetable stock  – I used low sodium
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 Tbsp  chile powder
1 tsp. Cayenne Pepper.. recipe calls for Aleppo Pepper.. I could NOT find it. 
(Use any combination of chile powders or spicy red pepper that you have if you don’t have  Aleppo pepper .. like I did )
1/2 cup uncooked brown lentils – rinsed
1/4 cup uncooked brown rice
1 cup peanut butter – I used natural no sugar added

I used my favorite 5 Qt Crockpot for this.. but I think you could use 3.5 Qt for it too.

How To: 

Chop onions, green  onion, bell peppers, and garlic and place in crockpot.  Add canned tomatoes with juice, Vegetable Stock,  ground cumin,  chile powder, cayenne pepper,  lentils, and brown rice.
Cook on high for about 4 hours or on low for about 8 hours. – Stir if you want.. not necessary
At 4 hours (on high ) add in  and stir Peanut Butter it will dissolve .. or at 8 hours (on low).. then turn to low and let cook for one more hour.
Serve as is or with croutons … DELISH !photo
