Lentil Not Soft After 8 hrs!

First time preparing this dish. Cooked all ingredients in slow cooker for 8 hrs on low and lentils were still hard! Very disappointed. Either need to cook on high , or increase hours. Did not soak beans overnight, maybe I need to do that next time.....or use red lentils, which is my lentil of choice, much more tender.!
