1 medium onion or a few scallions, chopped<br><br>
2-3 garlic cloves, minced (to taste)<br><br>
1/2 cup lentils (not red), sorted and rinsed<br><br>
1.5 - 2 cups vegetable broth or water<br><br>
1 carrot, peeled and chopped<br><br>
2 celery ribs, chopped<br><br>
1 bundle baby bok choy, chopped (white part only, leaves reserved and coarsely chopped)<br><br>

In a large saucepan over medium heat, add the onions/scallions and garlic. Stir until soft and browning. Add lentils, vegetable broth, and vegetables (reserving kale and bok choy leaves). Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 40-45 minutes until lentils are cooked but firm and liquid is almost entirely absorbed.<br><br><br><br>
Add kale and bok choy leaves and kidney beans. Return heat to medium and simmer a few minutes until greens are wilted. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve with crusty bread.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Additional comments:<br><br>
I had a can of beans but didn't feel like beans and rice. This is the result of emptying my produce drawer. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> My husband declared it "delicious." Sub whatever veggies you have on hand, naturally.
