    Slow-Cooker Ham and Lentil Soup

    INGREDIENTS
    1 cup dried lentils
    1 cup chopped celery
    1 cup chopped carrots
    1 cup chopped onion
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 1/2 cups diced cooked ham
    1/2 teaspoon dried basil
    1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
    1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    1 bay leaf
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    32 ounces chicken broth
    1 cup water
    8 teaspoons tomato sauce

    In a 3 1/2 quart or larger slow cooker combine the lentils, celery, carrots, onion, garlic and ham. Season with basil, thyme, oregano, the bay leaf and pepper. Stir in the chicken broth, water and tomato sauce. Cover and cook on Low for 11 hours. Discard the bay leaf before serving.
    There's quite a bit of prep work involved, but it's worth it You can just chop everything up the night before, then get up early and throw it all together and turn it on

    You can sub chicken for the ham, or nothing if you don't want meat.

    I hope you like it!

    1⁄2 pound French green lentils (lentilles du Puy)
    2 cups chopped yellow onions
    2 cups chopped leeks, white and light green parts only
    1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
    2 teaspoons kosher salt
    3⁄4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
    1 1⁄2 cups chopped celery (4 stalks)
    1 1⁄2 cups chopped carrots (3 carrots)
    1 1⁄2 cups Homemade Chicken Stock, recipe follows, or good canned broth
    2 tablespoons tomato paste
    2 tablespoons good red wine vinegar


    Place the lentils in a heat-proof bowl and cover with boiling water. Set aside for 15 minutes, then drain.
    Meanwhile, heat the oil in a saute pan, add the onions, leeks, thyme, salt, and pepper and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, until the onions are translucent. Add the garlic and cook for 2 more minutes. Add the drained lentils, celery, carrots, chicken stock, and tomato paste. Cover and simmer over low heat for 20 minutes, until the lentils are tender. Add the vinegar and season, to taste.
