  1. Wash lentils.* In a large stockpot, combine lentils and all ingredients except basil, thyme, and vegetable juice. Bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add remaining ingredients, adjust seasonings as desired, and simmer 15 more minutes.
Recipe Notes

* To wash lentils thoroughly, place them in a large bowl and fill it with cold water. Scoop up handfuls of the lentils and scrub them by rubbing your palms together. The water will likely turn a little dirty. Drain the water and refill with clean water. Swish lentils in water and drain.  Repeat until the water runs clear.
