  • 8 ounces Lentils
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 32 ounces chicken stock
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  • Chop onion, carrots, and celery finely, put in a medium sized pot and saute in butter until browned. You may want to add some salt at this point to help the vegetables to sweat. Add bay leaves and season vegetable mixture with salt and pepper. Add chicken stock and lentils cook on low - medium heat until the the lentils are done, this took about 20-25 minutes.
