1 cup dried Lentils

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 carrot chopped

4 cups of vegetable broth

1 teaspoon oregano

hot pepper to taste if desired

In a large bowl of water soak the lentils for approximately 30 minutes, then drain and rinse.

In a large pot add olive oil, garlic and onion heat on medium heat until onion is soft and has golden color, then add the chopped celery, potato, zucchini and carrot, cook for approximately 3-4 minutes stirring often.

Then add the lentils, vegetable broth, oregano, salt, black pepper, and hot pepper, stir to combine then bring to a boil, lower the heat to a slow boil.

Cover the pot, and let it slow boil for approximately 30 minutes, stirring occasionally or until lentils are tender.

Chef tips:

If you decide not to soak the lentils then just rinse them under cold water before cooking, they may take a bit longer to cook.
