OK...make your Lentil jokes (see this MST 3000 entry). This is a great low-fat and filling stew. I serve this over brown rice and it is a great lunch. Very easy to make. Could also be used as a side-dish (I suppose) in smaller portions.
1 cup Dried lentils (use plain brown lentils and rinse them before putting in the slow cooker)
1 cup Carrots, diced
1 cup Celery, diced
1 cup Onions, diced
3 tsp (or cloves) Garlic, diced
1 tsp Basil, dried
1 tsp Oregano, dried
1/2 tsp Thyme, dried
2-3 Bay leaves
4 cups Broth (vegatable or chicken)
1 14.5 oz Can of petite diced tomatoes
1. Place all the items in the slow cooker and gently stir a few times.
2. Cook all day 10-12 hours on low setting.
3. Discard bay leaves and enjoy.
Serving suggestion, serve over brown rice (1/2 cup per serving or so).
