Crock-pot Lentil Soup

Super Easy... Perfect for a cold night,
serve with toasted french bread 

I love lentil's and even more lentil soup. This is an insanely easy recipe and took very little time to prepare.  Just throw it all in the crock-pot, go on with your day and when dinner rolls around just toast some french bread or cheese rolls and dinner is served. 

2 medium  uncooked carrots, peeled, cut into large chunks
2 ribs (medium) uncooked celery, cut into large chunks
1 medium  uncooked onion, cut into large chunks
2 cloves (medium) garlic cloves, minced
2 cups dry lentils, picked over... I used green I was going to use 1/2 orange 1/2 green but can't find my orange lentils
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp table salt, or to taste
1/4 tsp black pepper, or to taste
6 cups vegetable broth (I used Trader Joe’s brand)
2 cups water

Place ingredients in a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker. Cover slow cooker; cook on low setting for 6 hours.
Even better the next day.
