Ingredients

  • 1 onion
  • 3-4 cloves garlic
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 6 oz. mushrooms
  • 1 zucchini
  • 15 oz. can diced tomatoes (or fire-roasted)
  • 4 cups vegetable broth*
  • 1 cup brown/green lentils (uncooked)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. dried basil (or other herbs of choice)
  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  1. Dice onion.
  2. In a stockpot over medium-high heat, add onion. Saute for about 8 minutes. (I use 3 Tbsp. water/veggie broth for no-oil saute method. Simply add a touch more liquid if the pan dries out & the onion starts to stick.)
  3. Meanwhile, mince garlic. Dice zucchini and carrot. Slice mushrooms.
  4. When onion is translucent, add garlic, zucchini, carrots, mushrooms, and dried basil. Stir and saute for 2 minutes.
  5. Add diced tomatoes with juice and vegetable broth*.
  6. Increase heat and bring to a light boil.
  7. Rinse and drain lentils. Add lentils to pot and stir.
  8. Reduce heat, cover, and lightly simmer for 25-30 minutes or until lentils are tender. (Add more broth or water if desired.)
  9. Roughly chop spinach and stir in during the last couple minutes of cooking. Salt to taste. (Serve with fresh chopped parsley, basil, or cilantro if desired.)
