    1                    Bay leaf
      1/2   c            Fresh parsley, minced
    2       tb           Cider vinegar (or to taste)
 
   In a heavy kettle, combine the broth, 3 cups water,
   lentils, rice, tomatoes and juice, carrots, onion,
   celery, garlic, basil, oregano, thyme, and bay leaf.
   Bring mixture to a boil and simmer, covered, stirring
   occasionally, for 45-55 minutes or until lentils and
   rice are tender. Stir in parsley, vinegar, and salt
   and pepper to taste. Discard bay leaf. The soup will
   be thick and will thicken more as it stands. Thin, if
   desired, with chicken stock.
   
   Makes about 14 cups.
