Wish I could remember who I got this from so I could give credit!  This is so quick and easy (and healthy too, I love when I can cook with all fresh ingredients!)


1 pound Lentils, dried
4 cups Chicken broth, reduced sodium (1 box)
4 cups Water
3 stalks Celery, diced
3 Carrots, diced
2 medium Onions, diced
2 cloves Garlic, minced
1 tsp Parsley, dried
1 tsp Basil, dried
1 tsp Oregano, dried
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
Large pinch Red pepper flakes
  Black Pepper to taste
  Table salt to taste (I don’t use any)


Throw everything into the crock, and stir. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Near the end of the cooking time, give it a stir and add more water or broth if you want it soupier.

Serves 12, 1 cup/serving
