In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil. Add the bacon, onion, carrot and garlic and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until the vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes. Add the lentils, water and bay leaf, season with salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Cover partially and simmer over very low heat until the lentils are just tender, about 20 minutes. Discard the bay leaf. Stir in the herbs and season with salt and pepper.
