Tuscan Garden Lentils

(2 Votes)
1 Hr

It doesn't get any easier than this. Lots of fresh veggies simmered with lentils and highlighted with Tasty Tuscan Green Kale. This one pot go-along is just as at-home next to pot roast, as it is fried chicken.

What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 cup dried lentils, rinsed and drained
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups green kale (we used Tasty Tuscany)

What to Do

  1. In a large soup pot heat oil over medium heat and cook carrots, celery and onion about 6 to 8 minutes, or until tender, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir in remaining ingredients except kale and bring to a boil over high heat.
  3. Reduce to low, cover and simmer 45 to 50 minutes, or until lentils are tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in kale last 15 minutes of cooking.

My partner and I try to eat vegetarian a few times a week but his parents out of nowhere decided to go vegetarian full time so this could be the perfect dish to make for them when they come over. Could I use a vegetable broth instead of the beef?

Hi there! You can absolutely use vegetable broth! Enjoy.

Excellent! Adding this to my weekly rotation! I also made it adding Italian sausage and it was yummy too!

I love this and wish you would post more meatless dishes.
