  • 1 carrot, peeled and diced
  • ¼ yellow onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ½ orange, yellow or red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 cup dried lentils
  • 3 cups beef broth {vegetable broth or water can be substituted}
Instructions
  1. In a large saute pan over medium heat, add in the olive oil, tomato, carrot, onion, garlic, bell pepper, celery, oregano, salt and pepper.
  2. Cook until softened, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add in the lentils and broth, lower the heat and cover with a lid.
  4. Simmer for 40-45 minutes, until the lentils are tender and the liquid is absorbed. NOTE: stir occasionally to prevent sticking and you can add a little broth or water if drying out before the lentils are tender.
