  1. Heat a pan over medium heat.
  2. Add the oil and flour. Stir or whisk together until a roux is formed, turning a light brown caramel color, around 10 minutes. Be sure not to let it burn.
  3. Add your onions, celery, bell pepper, and garlic. Saute until vegetables begin to sweat, about another 5 minutes, whisking frequently.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients, minus the tomato sauce.
  5. Bring to a quick boil then reduce to low and simmer for 20 minutes or until lentils are cooked through.
  6. Add tomato sauce during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Stir together and keep warm.
  7. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Serve into bowls and garnish with jalapeno or cilantro.
