Beet braised lentils – a healthy vegan stew, soup or side dish, that is full of incredible flavor! Serve this on its own as a vegan main, or a along side fish, chicken or meat.
Optional Garnishes 2- 3 tablespoons browned butter (optional but delicious) or crumbled goat cheese
Add the beet juice, taste for salt, add more if necessary, and continue simmering on low for 10-15 more minutes or until tender. If you feel there is too much liquid for your liking, keep the lid off, and increase the heat, letting it reduce. ( I like this braise slightly juicy, personally, so I just replace the lid.)
Stir in the balsamic vinegar and taste again, adjusting if necessary.
Serve with optional browned butter or goat cheese crumbles. If going vegan, a little drizzle of olive oil is nice.
Serve as vegan main dish or as a side dish to fish, chicken or meat.
