    2 cups brown lentils
    4 cups cold water
    1 tbsp. sea salt
    ¼ tsp pepper
    ¼ cup butter
    ¼ cup olive oil
    1 large can plum tomatoes drained and chopped
    1 large onion, diced
    2 tbsp. minced fresh dill or 1 tbsp. dry dill
    4 garlic cloves
    3 bay leaves


    1 head of Swiss chard, remove ridges – use leaves only, chopped
    ¼ cup of red wine
    1 package sliced baby portabellas
    2 tsp olive oil


Put all items in the first set of ingredients (through the bay leaves) in a heavy non-aluminum pot and bring to a boil.

Add the red wine when it starts to boil, then cover and simmer for 2 to 2-1/2 hours.

About ½ hour into the simmering, add the Swiss chard.

Sautee the baby portabella mushrooms on the side in the 2 tsp olive oil and add them to the soup about 1 hr. into the simmering.
