  • 2 sliced celery stalks
  • 1 medium diced onion

  • 1/2 teaspoon sage
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon parsley
  • 3 tablespoons margarine
  • 3 tablespoons flour


Cook lentils and 2 cups of water on low heat till tender. Put prepared vegetables in a large saucepan with 6 cups of water plus bouillon. Bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes. Add prepared potatoes to cooking vegetables. Cool all vegetables for 20 minutes while seasoning the lentils with sage, salt, and parsley.

Prepare a thickening by melting margarine in a frying pan, adding flour, then 1 cup of water from cooking vegetables. Drain vegetables and put in an oven-proof bowl. Add lentils and thickening. Stir. If mixture is too thick, add more water from the cooking process. Place pie crust on top and bake till brown (about 1 hour).
