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!)

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)

Directions:

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
