This one is by request of Laurie. It's a really good & healthy soup. Can you tell I like soup?

1 c. dry lentils
6 c. water
2 cloves garlic
1 diced onion
2 celery stalks, sliced
2 carrots, diced
1 bay leaf
2 Tbsp olive oil
4 chicken bouillon cubes
salt & pepper to taste at end

Bring lentils, water, garlic, onion, celery, carrot, bouillon, & bay leaf to a boil. Boil 5 min. Reduce heat to low, Partially cover & simmer 45-50 min, until lentils are tender and thick. At the end, add the oil & season to taste. May need to add extra water if it is too thick. Remove bay leaf before serving.
