In a 2 1/2-quart saucepan, place rinsed lentils, bay leaf, carrots, onion, and celery. Add enough broth to cover by 1/2 inch. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer and cook until just tender, 45 to 50 minutes; there should be some liquid (about 3 tablespoons) left.

Mash garlic confit with unsalted butter. Stir into cooked lentils, and serve hot.
