Ingredients

  • 1

    Tbsp olive oil

  • 1

    cup chopped red onion

  • 1

    Tbsp minced garlic

  • 2

    tsp chili powder

  • 1

    tsp mustard powder

  • 2

    cups fat-free chicken or vegetable broth

  • 3/4

    cup tomato sauce

  • 3

    Tbsp balsamic vinegar

  • 1

    Tbsp Dijon mustard

  • 2

    Tbsp agave nectar or honey

  • 1 1/2

    cups dry (uncooked) brown lentils, rinsed

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Heat olive oil in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and saute until softened and translucent, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and spices and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute; do not brown garlic. Add broth, tomato sauce, vinegar, mustard, agave, and lentils. Stir well and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until lentils are tender, but intact, about 30 minutes. Lentil cooking times vary. If necessary, add an additional 1/4 cup water and simmer for 5 minutes longer if lentils are not tender. Season with salt and pepper. Yield: 2 quarts; 8 (1/2 cup) servings.
