DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over med-high heat; add in onion, garlic, carrots, celery, and sage leaves; saute until the garlic and onion are fragrant, 3-4 minutes.
  • Add in tomatoes and cook 2-3 minutes to evaporate some of the juices.
  • Transfer the contents of the skillet to the insert of a 5- to 7-quart slow cooker.
  • Stir in the lentils and broth.
  • Cover the cooker and cook on HIGH for 4 hours or on LOW for 7-8 hours, until the lentils are tender.
  • Check the soup at around 3 or 6 hours to make sure there is enough broth and the soup isn't sticking to the pan; add more broth if it is sticking.
  • Season with salt and pepper before serving.
