    Lentils, 1 cup
    Vegetable Broth, 8 cup
    Olive Oil, .5 cup
    Onions, raw, 2 large
    Garlic, 6 cloves
    Pepper, red or cayenne, 1 tbsp
    *Parsely, raw 1 Tablespoon, 6 tbsp
    Red Ripe Tomatoes, 4 cup, chopped or sliced
    Tomato Paste, 0.5 cup
    Sour Cream, 16 tbsp
    Celery, raw, 1.5 cup, diced
    Roasting Chicken, light meat, 554 grams
    Spinach, fresh, 2 cup
    Rosemary, dried


Rinse lentils and then put them in a large pot with the broth. Heat until it's boiling, reduce to a simmer and let it cook slowly for about 40 minutes as you prep everything else.

Cook the chopped onions in the olive oil. Once translucent, add the garlic, celery and chicken. (I buy a whole precooked chicken fresh and chop and add it)

When the onions and celery start to brown add in the tomatoes. Stir in cayenne or red pepper to taste.

When the tomatoes give their juice, add in the tomato paste.


Combine with the lentils and broth.

let simmer for 15 minutes. Wilt the spinach on top and then stir in rosemary to taste. Salt and pepper to taste

Serve with a large dollop of sour cream.

You're welcome.

This is less calories when you have smaller portions. I just can't resist the large portions, and it fills me up for hours and hours.
