Thought I'd share this recipe with the list. It is one of my favorites.
The original had sausage in it but it works as well, if not better, without!
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 small green pepper, finely chopped
1 small carrot, finely chopped
1 large garlic cove, finely minced
1 bay leaf
2 cans (14-1/2 oz each) vegetable broth
1 can (14-1/2 to 16 oz) whole tomatoes with liquid, coarsely chopped
1 cup water
3/4 cup dry lentils
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
In large pot combine all ingredients except mustard. Simmer, covered, 1
hour or until lentils and vegetables are tender. Stir in the mustard.
Remove and discard bay leaf before serving. Yield: 6 servings.
I usually don't add the green pepper, but add corn instead. My family
prefers this. I usually use a can of stewed tomatoes instead of whole
tomatoes. I think the mustard gives this a wonderful flavor. Hope you
