  • Heat oil in a 6-qt. pot over medium-high heat. Add celery, carrots, bell pepper, 3 (of the 5) Tbsp. shallot, and the minced garlic. Cook and stir, until softened, about 3-5 minutes. Add tomato paste; cook and stir for 30 seconds. Add lentils, vegie broth, 1/2 tsp. pepper, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer until the lentils are tender, 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine parsley, lime juice, vinegar, and the remaining 2 Tbsp. shallot and 1/4 tsp. each pepper and salt in a small bowl; stir well.
  • To serve, divide the stew among 4 bowls and top each with a dollop of the salsa verde. Pass the remaining salsa verde separately.

    Looks and sounds very nice, I love that it is so easy to make. Does it freeze well?

    Excellent! We enjoyed this lentil soup with Le Puy green lentils which stay firm and never mushy. Maybe I will use a bit less white wine vinegar in the salsa verdi next time.
