A Mildly Wonderful Lentil Soup - Gluten Free

This soup is safe for a gluten free diet, a yeast free diet, vegans and is low-fat. In fact it is free of the 8 most common allergens.  I love this soup, it has a nice mild flavor. Your kitchen will smell wonderful!

1 tsp. salt
few grinds of black pepper
1 Tbsp. dried parsley
6 cups water
1 -32oz  vegetable broth (read labels for allergens) I use Pacific brand.

Rinse lentils, set aside.
Chop celery, carrots and onion finely. In a kettle, saute in olive oil.
