    Ham & Lentil Soup

    1 cup dry lentils
    4 cups water
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 cup chopped celery
    1 cup sliced carrot
    2 teaspoons instant chicken bouillon granules
    1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic or 2 cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
    1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
    1 cup cubed cooked ham
    2 cups chopped fresh spinach

    1. Rinse and drain lentils. In a 3-1/2- or 4-quart crockery cooker combine lentils, water, onion, celery, carrot, bouillon granules, garlic, lemon peel, and red pepper.
    2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 7 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3-1/2 to 4 hours. If using low-heat setting, turn to high-heat setting. Add ham. Cover and cook for 10 minutes more on high-heat setting. Stir in chopped spinach; serve immediately. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

    Note: For a 5- to 6-quart cooker recipe may be doubled.
