2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1.5 cups halved Brussels Sprouts
2 cups green lentils
1 tsp minced fresh rosemary
1 bay leaf
1 tsp dried oregano
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 15-oz can diced tomatoes
64 oz low-salt vegetable broth (can be combined with water)

Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker. Turn heat on low and cook for 8-10 hours, adding a little more broth toward the end if soup seems too thick.
