This recipe is so delicious! It's from my mother, who is a vegetarian, and uses vegetable broth instead of chicken. It tastes wonderful either way. A great hearty meal with crusty bread and a tossed salad! Enjoy!!!
1 cup dry lentils
3 1/2 cups chicken broth
1-14 1/2 ounce can peeled Italian-style tomatoes, cut up
1 cup peeled and chopped potato
1/2 cup chopped carrot
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 Tb. snipped parsley
1 Tb. dried basil, crushed
1 clove garlic, minced
Rinse and drain lentils. In a large saucepan combine lentils, broth, and undrained tomatoes, potato, carrot, celery, onion, parsley, garlic, and pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer to 50 minutes or until lentils and vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Makes 4 servings.
