Red Lentil and Vegetable Soup -- Zero Smart Points

This recipe is zero Smart Points on the new Freestyle Weight Watcher program.  It would be good made with chicken broth and adding some chicken breast too.

It calls for "herbes de provence"  which is a combination of herbs and lavender.  Don't worry about not having it on hand, I list the ingredients of the mixture and doubt if you'd even miss the lavender flowers!  I happened to have some of the herbes de provence on hand left over from a recipe I tried some time ago.  This is the first occasion I've had to use any more of it.
