- Add lentils and vegetable stock to sauce pan and cover. Turn temperature to medium heat. When Vapo-Valve™ clicks, reduce temperature to low and cook for 30 - 40 minutes or until just done.
- Slice carrots and parsnips directly into a bowl. Add olive oil and toss to evenly coat vegetables.
- Preheat skillet over medium heat. When several drops of water sprinkled on skillet skitter and dissipate, add vegetables and sauté for 1 - 1½ minutes.
- Add balsamic vinegar and reduce until half the liquid is gone. Do not stir the mixture while the vinegar is reducing.
