Stewed Lentils

Stewed lentils, Lenticchie Stuffate in Italian,  are amongst one of my favorite foods. And are soooo good for me! Lots of protein!

My recipe comes from my life in Italy:

soffrito

Sautee’ the vegetables in the evo until onion is translucent. Add the rinsed Lentils to the pan and let sautee’ a couple minutes.

Put the sautéed lentils and veggies in the crock pot on high and add 3 cups vegetable broth, tomato sauce and thyme.

Cook for approx. 1 1/2 hrs. Add more broth if needed until lentils are soft, mixing occasionally. Lentils 1
