I can’t also recommend enough this Instant Pot lentil soup, spinach lentil soup or slow cooker lentil soup.  I know what you might be thinking but trust me they are all different.:)

Healthy family recipes with simple ingredients. Many are inspired by my Ukrainian heritage. I share mostly dinner recipes because it just never ends... I’m obsessed with healthy freezer meals. And more than in love with my Instant Pot.

  1. I’ve been reading articles that say to stay away from corn because it’s GMO. They say it was genetically altered with a bacteria from the soil that kills bugs by rupturing their stomach. Also, supposedly they did studies on mice by feeding them corn and they grew tumors all over their bodies. Pictures were shown. What do you think?

    1. Hi Sandra. That is correct. That is why I buy only organic corn that is non GMO and is raised without pesticides and herbicides. The best you can get today. The only corn non GMO today. I buy frozen organic. It is everywhere. Costco carries it too. Anything organic is non GMO.

  2. I made this today, right on the heels of your Spinach & Artichoke Quinoa Casserole last night. I did make it on the stove, as half a recipe would be plenty for me. Thank you for including that option! I put a splash of 1/2 & 1/2 right at the end, just for a bit of richness (does NOT need it though!). Thank you so much for another fantastic recipe!

  3. This sounds so yummy! I love crockpot recipes and use mine a lot on the days I work, especially in the winter. Thanks for the great recipe!
