Ingredients

    1lb extra lean ground beef
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 28oz can of crushed tomatoes
    4 cups of low sodium beef broth
    1.5 cups chopped carrots
    3 stalks of celery, chopped
    3 cloves of garlic, minced
    1 tsp thyme
    1/2 cup of lentils (or more if you desire)
    salt and pepper to taste

Directions

In a large soup pot over medium heat, cook the ground beef and onions until the meat is brown and the onions are soft. About 7 minutes. At the last minute add the garlic and cook until fragrant. Add the veggies, tomatoes, broth, lentils and spices and bring to a simmer. Cook for at least an hour, the longer the better.
Alternately, you can brown your meat in a skillet, then throw all your ingredients in the slowcooker and simmer on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.
