Hearty Lentils with Kielbasa

Hearty Lentils with Kielbasa



2 tablespoons olive oil

2 stalks celery, chopped

1 large yellow onion, chopped

1 large carrot, chopped

1 pound green lentils

1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes, drained

1 quart water, more if needed

2 teaspoons dried oregano

2 teaspoons salt

1/2 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper

1 12-ounce kielbasa rope, sliced into rounds


  1. In a large pot, heat the oil over moderate heat.
  2. Add the celery, onion, and carrot and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent, 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Add the lentils, tomatoes, water, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat and cook, partially covered, until the lentils are tender, about 40 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over moderately high heat. Add the kielbasa and cook, turning, until browned, 3-5 minutes.
  5. Stir the kielbasa into the lentils and simmer for 5 minutes. If the lentils are too thick for your taste, thin it with additional water.
