  • 1 large carrot, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1.5 cups brown lentils

  • 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.
