In a stock pot, set to medium heat, cook onion in olive oil for about 5 minutes. Add remaining vegetables and continue to cook for about 4 minutes.  Add chicken stock and bring to a simmer.  Add remaining ingredients and simmer for about 15 minutes until lentils are tender.  Serve with a dusting of Parmesan cheese.

About Lorie Fangio

I am a lifestyle advisor with a passion for connecting families Around the Table for mealtime. We are becoming a society that doesn’t even speak to each other, texting and internet relationships are the norm and it is impacting our culture. I believe the human connection as we know it, is in danger. Finding time to spend together as a family unit can be difficult especially with dual family careers and children that are often hyper scheduled. My mission is to inspire families, with a no nonsense approach to real food. Gathering Around the Table is key to the foundation of familial relationships. Sitting down to a meal is much more than breaking bread, it is a bonding ritual for families that actually protects our kids from all the dangerous stuff in the world. With tips and techniques we can all get our families Around the Table!
