This is a nice replacement for rice and potato. This is one recipe I take when we travel and are staying in condos.
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 cup onion, chopped
- 2⁄3 cup carrot, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup celery, chopped
- 1 1⁄4 cups green lentils, picked over
- 4 cups chicken broth
- Saute the veggies for 5 minutes. Add lentils and stir one minute.
- Add stock and bring to a boil. Reduce and cook for 35 minutes. Add salt and pepper for seasoning.
This was a little bland but okay and better with a little sour cream and salt. It makes a whole lot. Twice when I've made this (out of, say, 5 times), I needed more water (1.5 cups) and longer cooking time because the lentils were still a little crunchy.
