1 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 celery rib, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp dried basil
2 cups organic low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 cup sprouted green lentils, such as TruRoots

Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion, celery, garlic and basil; cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened, 4-5 minutes. Pour in the broth, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Stir in the lentils, reduce heat to medium and cook 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, cover and let stand 8 minutes to allow lentils to become tender. Lentils will be slightly wet; drain if desired.
