I began making this dish in the 1970s and it has evolved since then into a great Winter favorite. This will surprise you with both it's sweet, true vegetable flavors and just the right amount of seasoning. Served with a good bread, this will satisfy and nourish all the athletes and couch potatoes who look to you for a delicious meal. Easy, good for you and inexpensive to make. TIP: Lactose intolerant cooks can omit the bit of butter.

Ingredients

  • ! c brown or green lentils (washed and picked over for any little stones (don't use your lentils de puys on this dish))
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled, split and diced
  • 1 nice-sized zucchini (about 8 oz), split and cubed
  • 2 tbs finely chopped parsley
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 leeks (about 8oz) (white part mostly, washed well, then sliced)
  • 1 stalk celery, diced (a stalk with leaves is fine!)
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 lemons, juiced (seeds and pulp discarded)
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • sea salt & black pepper to taste
  • 4 - 6 c vegetable broth (tip: a little wiggle room here - the lentils will take up more liquid after the initial water soak, however, the vegetables will also release some liquid, especially after you add salt. the final dish should is a stew, not a soup, so you want to monitor the amount of liquid.)
