Honey Lentils

We had these for dinner last week on a night when my husband wasn't home.  He's not a fan of lentils.  But I am!  And the flavor was very different from any lentils I've made before.  We liked them with brown rice.

1 1/2 cups lentils
2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 red onion, diced
1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
2 medium carrots, shredded
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp dijon mustard
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1/3 cup honey
2 dried bay leaves

Rinse the lentils and then place in the crockpot.  Add the broth, water, onions, carrots and chickpeas.  Stir in the mustard and salt.  Add the soy sauce and honey.  Stir gently to combine.  Float the bay leaves on top.  Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours on high or 3-5 hours on high.
