Throw smoked turkey, dried lentils, and a handful of other ingredients into the slow cooker in the morning, and you'll come home to a hearty and comforting meal. If you prefer to use dried oregano instead of the fresh, reduce the amount to 1/2 teaspoon. Dried herbs are very potent; a little goes a long way.
