3. Place onions, celery stalks, tomatoes, and carrots in a food processor with rosemary leaves. Pulse for a few seconds (add a little water if necessary to improve mixing). Add into a pot vegetable mixture, potato chunks and previously soaked lentils. Add excess water (2 inch or 4-5cm) and remaining ingredients.
