  • 2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Paprika
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Cumin
  • ¼ teaspoons Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 cups Brown Lentils
  • 10 cups Chicken Broth Or Water With 1-2 Teaspoons Salt
  • Optional Herbs (I Used 4 Sprigs Thyme, 1 Sprig Rosemary, 2 Bay Leaves, 3 Juniper Berries)
