Gluten Free Slow Cooker Red Lentil Masala

I love a good spicy dish, and it's even better when I can put it in the slow cooker and leave it for a while when I don't have time to stand at the cooker. This red lentil masala is naturally gluten free and also vegan, it is packed with so many delicious flavours, super filling and low calorie!
