1 – In a slow cooker, set on low, place one-half cup of lentils.  Add 2 cups of chicken broth, 2 tablespoons of Bac’n pieces, one tablespoon of olive oil.  Cook all day; lentils will be somewhat mushy, and if this isn’t desired, reduce cooking time.

2 – Place cod in covered baking dish with a little water.  Season with salt and pepper. Sift Cajun blackened seasoning generously on top.  Add some olive oil.  Set aside.

3 – Peel carrots.  Chop on the diagonal with one-quarter-inch cuts.  Season with salt, pepper, oregano, and olive oil.  Cook for 4 minutes in microwave on high.

4 – Cook cod for 5 minutes in the microwave on high.

5 – Serve the dinner hot.

–cod and carrots adapted from Real Simple; lentils original.
