HoneyB’s Lentil Stew (Vegan)

1 medium carrot, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1 bay leaf

Saute the above ingredients until softened. Then add:

2 cups uncooked lentils
4 cups water
4 cups vegetable broth (made with better than boullion vegetable base)
1-14.5 can diced tomatoes
salt and pepper to taste

Simmer until lentils are cooked, approximately 1 hour. If you wish, you can add more water to thin this out into more soup like consistency. We like to eat it a little thicker.
