Number of Servings: 7


    2 Tbsp olive oil
    2 yellow onions, sliced
    2 cloves garlic, smashed and minced
    2 cups dry lentils, rinsed and sorted
    1 cup carrots, sliced into coins
    5 cups chicken stock (OR 1 4-cup box of chicken stock and 1 to 2 cups water, depending on how thick or thin you like it)
    1 cooked chicken breast, shredded
    2 medium tomatoes, chopped


In a large pot, heat up the olive oil over medium-low heat. Add the onions and let them heat up to caramelize them (they'll get a nice brown color, could take up to 30 minutes, maybe even longer). Add all other ingredients, stir, then let simmer for 30 minutes.

You can serve it with fresh herbs (parsley, chives) and a dollop of fat free plain yogurt*
