00 min


1 cup of green lentils

2 cups of chicken or vegetable broth

1 container of Mirepoix (chopped carrots, onion and celery, most grocery stores sell this prep chopped, huge time saver!) or 2 cups equal parts chopped carrots, onions and celery

1 tablespoon of Olive Oil

2 garlic cloves minced

2 cups of vegetable or chicken stock

2 tablespoons of chopped parsley

2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar

Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. Bring lentils and broth to a boil, then turn the heat down to low, simmer and cover the lentils for 15-20 minutes, until they’re cooked but still have a bite.

  2. Heat up the olive oil on a large pan on medium heat.

  3. Add the mirepoix, mixing around with a wooden spoon until the vegetables start to sweat (about 3-5 minutes).

  4. Add the garlic until fragrant (about 1 minute).

  5. Add the lentils, then add another cup of broth.

  6. Turn the heat up to high until the lentil mixture comes to a boil, then turn down to simmer and cover. Stir every now and then until the stock is absorbed (about 15-20 minutes).

  7. Once ready, turn off the heat and add parsley and balsamic then season with salt and pepper.
