Fabulous Lentil Stew

Fennel adds a sweet touch to lentils and vegetables in this thick and hearty stew. Vegan, wheat-free, corn-free, low fat, heart smart.

1 1/2 cups brown lentils, rinsed
6 cups water
2  bay leaves
1 strip dulse
1 tablespoon dried nettles-optional
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
5 cloves garlic, sliced
1/4 teaspoon fennel seeds
1 1/2 cups sliced onions
1 1/2 cups celery, sliced
2 cups yellow squash, sliced in 1/4-inch quarters
4 cups sliced kale
1 pound tomatoes or 1 can (14 ounces) diced tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon fresh rosemary or 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
2 teaspoons fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon sea salt or to taste
Boil and simmer the lentils, bay leaves, dulse and nettles for 15 minutes while you sauté the vegetables.

Heat a heavy skillet. Add olive oil, garlic, fennel seeds and onions. Sauté for 5 minutes and add celery. Sauté for 5 minutes and add yellow squash. Sauté for 3 minutes or until it becomes bright yellow. Add fresh chopped kale and sauté vegetables to the lentils. Simmer for 10 minutes or until the lentils are soft. Add tomatoes. Simmer for a couple of minutes. Add herbs and sea salt. Simmer 2 minutes to blend the flavors and taste. Add more seasonings, if desired.
