My girls Stella (10) and Rosa (4) love this meal We cook it all the time.


  • onions
  • celery
  • 1 cup any lentils
  • 1 tin tomatoes
  • 1 spoonful tomato paste
  • a pinch of chili powder (or more if you like)
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 4 cups broth/stock


Saute the onions and celery. Add 1 cup of lentils and 4 cups of broth, then simmer until lentils are soft (35-40 minutes). Add the tin of tomatoes, a spoonful of tomato paste, chili powder, cumin, garlic salt, and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes.

Put grated cheese on (if desired) and pop into the oven to melt.

Sounds like it would be yummy served with brown or multi-variety rice.
