Fix-it and forget-it vegetarian soups, stews and chilis by Phyllis Pellman Good

Cover Fix it and forget it Vegetarian Soups, stews and chilis


Just like the first Fix it and forget it book that I reviewed, this is a no-nonsense book with recipes suitable for a busy life with real life pictures. The recipes are all fairly easy and mostly for the slow cooker. With a few exceptions the instructions are limited to “mix all ingredients in the slow cooker and cook for 7-8 hours on low”. Can it be any easier? If you love beans and lentils especially, this is a book for you.

Out of the fifty recipes so far I have tried the Red Lentil Soup and it was super easy and very delicious. With baguette it is a nice, convenient and filling meal.

Red Lentil Soup


  • 1,2 l vegetable broth
  • 1 cup dry red lentils
  • 3 carrots sliced
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 celery stalks chopped
  • 3 tbsp rice uncooked
  • 2 tbsp garlic minced
  • 1.5 tsp herbes de Provence
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


Mix everything in crockpot

Cook 4-5h on high or 7-8 hours on low.

    • I would imagine that you can easily use regular lentils. Red lentils are fairly small and might taste a little different, but I am sure with the other kind the soup will turn out just as well.


  1. Rikki, I think the pre-boil allowed the lemony/orangey flavours to get in more – I wouldn’t normally pre-boil either. Cheers
