Best Ever Lentil Soup

I love thyme and tarragon. My house smells so good!!!! I can't stop eating this great soup!

1 tbsp coconut oil
1 onion, diced
2 medium carrots, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsps dried tarragon
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp paprika
3 tomatoes, diced
2 cups red lentils
3 cups veggie broth
3 cups water
1/2 tsp dried summer savory leaves
1 1/2 tsp salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Saute onion and carrots for about 10 minutes. Add garlic, tarragon, thyme, and paprika, and fry for a few more minutes. Add the tomatoes and some water to deglaze the pot. Cover and cook for 5 minutes.
Add the water, lentils, savory, salt, and pepper, then cover and bring to a boil. Once the soup is boiling lower to simmer and cook, covered, for about 45 minutes, or until the lentils are soft.
