Lentils a la Lana
Mince 1 small or 3/4 large onion
thinly slice several stalks of celery
mince half a bell pepper (i used red)

1 tsp minced garlic (mine was in the jar)
Melt one TBSP butter and small amount of olive oil in deep soup pot. Put above vegetables into the melted oil to soften and absorb it, on medium heat.
