This combination of vegetables and lentils, with its hearty flavor and rich brown color is a filling entree. If you prefer, serve a smaller portion as a side dish to accompany an omelet, quiche or souffle for a vegetarian meal.


1 1/2 cups brown lentils
4 medium potatoes, cubed
3 medium onions, chopped
1/2 lb. mushrooms, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced or pressed
2 Tbs. olive oil
1 1/2 cups sliced carrots
1 cup chopped celery
1 1/2 cups peeled and chopped tomatoes
1 quart water
1 cup dry red wine
2 small bay leaves
1 tsp. crushed dried basil leaves
3 Tbs. soy sauce
1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
Chopped parsley


Pick over, wash and drain lentils.

Using a large soup pot or casserole, lightly brown potatoes, onions, mushrooms and garlic in oil. Add carrots and celery. Saute briefly.

Add lentils and remaining ingredients. Simmer about 1 hour, partly covered, adding more water if needed during cooking. Check for doneness. If necessary, continue simmering until done. Serve stew, sprinkled with parsley.
