Recipe Notes

This recipe works really well in the slow cooker.  Simply add all ingredients to the crock pot (no need to sauté onion/garlic) reducing the amount of water to about 2 cups.  Cook 4-6 hours on high.  If the lentils are too runny, they will thicken once they sit out and cool down with the lid off for a bit.
