Ingredients:
2 Tablespoon(s) Good olive oil
1 Onion, chopped
2 Ribs celery, chopped
1 Carrot, grated
1 Clove garlic, minced
1/2 Red bell pepper, chopped
1 1/2 Cup(s) lentils
3 1/2 Cup(s) Chicken broth
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Crumbled basil
1 Teaspoon(s) Salt
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Black pepper
1 Bay leaf
Toasted Italian bread
Grated Fontina cheese
Directions:
In a large sauce pan heat oil and saute chopped veggies until lightly
browned, about 7 minutes. Add lentils and broth and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and add basil, salt, pepper and bay leaf. Simmer until
lentils are very soft, about 50 minutes. Remove the bay leaf and puree
in a food processor until very smooth. Let cool to room temp. Mound on
lightly toasted Italian bread and sprinkle with Fontina (if you want a
little color, a strip of roasted red pepper looks good). Run under a
preheated broiler until cheese is melted and bubbly. The lentil puree
keeps well, bring to room temp if refrigerated.
