Ingredients:
1 c dried green lentils
1 c chopped leek
1 bacon bone (one of the rib bits is best)
About 6 baby potatoes
1 tb ground cumin
1 c corn kernels

Method:
1). Wash and chop the potatoes into bitesize pieces. rinse the lentils.
2). Put everything except the corn into the slowcooker, with just enough water to cover the ingredients.
3). Cook on high until the potato is soft and breaking apart (about 5 hours)
4). Use tongs to remove the bacon bone, pull off any meat you can.
5). Use a potato masher to gently mash the soup. How much you wash depends on how smooth you want the soup to be. Mash just a little to make a chunky soup, or mash a lot (or even use a stick blender to puree it) if you like a smoother soup.
6). Stir in the bacon and corn into the slowcooker and turn it off. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes and then serve. Or allow to cool and spoon into containers for use later.
