  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 2 cups diced carrots (about 6 sm/med carrots)

  • 2 quarts vegetable stock
  • 1 can (28 ounce) crushed fire roasted tomatoes (I like Muir Glen)

  • 1 cup frozen sweet corn
  • 2 cups fresh green beans, trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • fresh ground pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat a dutch oven or large stock pot ver medium-high heat. Add olive oil and warm gently.

  2. Sauté the onion, celery, and carrots until just softened, approximately 5 minutes.

  3. Add in the tomatoes and broth or stock stir gently to combine.

  4. Pour in the dry green lentils and bring to brief boil. Lower the heat and allow to gently simmer for about 20 minutes.
