Makes 8 servings
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 cup coarsely chopped celery
- 1 cup coarsely chopped carrots
- 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
- 1 pound lentils
- 1 1/4 cups chicken broth or stock
- 2 oranges
- 10 fresh basil leaves

In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, heat the oil until hot. Add the celery, carrots and onion, and sauté, stirring frequently, until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
Add the lentils and broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer uncovered for about 45 minutes, or until the lentils are tender.
Meanwhile, peel the oranges and divide them into sections, removing any white pith or seeds. Roughly chop the basil.
Remove the lentil stew from the heat, stir in the orange sections, basil and lemon juice. Check for seasoning, adding salt and pepper as needed.
