DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the olive oil in a medium, heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat. Add the diced onion, pepper and celery. Cook, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes, or until they soften. Sprinkle in the cumin and chili powder; cook for an additional minute.
  • Add the lentils, 3 cups of water, tomato sauce, tomato paste, Sriracha and salt. Increase heat to medium and bring the lentils a simmer. Cook uncovered for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add more water if the level falls below the lentils.
  • Taste the lentils, and if they are sufficiently tender (stoves and pots may vary) adjust the salt and add the balsamic. Stir and serve over buttered buns you favorite toppings.
