  1. Add lentils, onions, garlic, and carrot juice to a saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for 20-30 minutes until the lentils are soft and pale. Add more carrot juice as needed.
  2. Meanwhile, steam the broccoli until just tender.
  3. Put the cooked lentil mixture in a food processor or blender (or use an immersion blender right in the saucepan) with the seasonings and balsamic vinegar and blend to a smooth paste. Add some carrot juice if it is too thick.
  4. Place broccoli in a bowl and combine with sauce. Top with chopped pecans.
  5. Enjoy!
