  • Olive Oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 leek, white (and a little bit of green) parts chopped
  • 1 large carrot, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1.5 cups brown lentils
  • 6 cups water
  • 1/3 head cauliflower, chopped (I would have used more, but the pot is full
  • 10 oz. diced tomatoes
  • 4 leaved swiss chard, shredded
  • salt to taste

Saute onion, garlic, leek, carrot, and celery in olive oil for 8-10 minutes.  Add salt, lentils, tomatoes, water.  Bring to a boil and simmer for 35minutes.  Add cauliflower.  Simmer for another 20ish minutes, until lentils are done.  Add swiss chard in the last few minutes of cooking.
