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 dried (uncooked) brown lentils, rinsed
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste.

Directions

Heat the oil in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and saute until softened and translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic, chili powder, and mustard powder and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute; do not brown the garlic. Add the broth, tomato sauce, vinegar, mustard, agave nectar or honey, and lentils; stir well, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until the lentils are tender but intact, about 30 minutes.

Lentil cooking times vary. If necessary, add 1/4 cup water and simmer for 5 minutes longer if lentils are not tender. Season with salt and pepper.
