Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: Serves 2


  • 1/4 red onion
  • 3 T. olive oil
  • 1/4 c. red lentils or TVP
  • 3/4 c. broth or water
  • 2 T. red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 oz. radicchio
  • 2 small heads of chicory
  • 2 oz. Harzer cheese or favorite cheese


Finely dice the onion and sauté in a pan with a little of the olive oil. Add the lentils and stir to coat, sauté another minute and add the broth. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 - 12 minutes until they are soft but still hold their shape.

For Texturized Vegetable Protein (TVP), saute onions and add to the pre-soaked TVP (reconstitutes in hot water in about 10 minutes).

Add the vinegar and the rest of the oil to the lentils and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Wash and dry the chicory and radicchio and cut or tear into bite sized pieces. Arrange on plates, spoon warm lentil dressing over the bitter greens and add the cheese on top.

Serve lukewarm, with baguette.
