1/2 yellow onion, diced  

2 carrots, diced   

2 ribs celery, diced   

Kosher salt and black pepper

Kosher salt and black pepper 

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 bay leaf  

One 14 1/2-ounce can diced tomatoes  

4 cups chicken stock  

2 cups lentils, rinsed  

Greek yogurt, for serving  

Sliced scallions, for serving 

Directions

  1. Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a medium stockpot. Add the onions, carrots and celery, and season with salt and pepper.
