 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      pounds        leeks -- well rinsed and
                         sliced 1/2-inch thick, including some of
                         the green part
    2      large         carrots -- peeled and sliced
                         1/2-inch thick
      1/4  cup           olive oil
    2 1/2  cups          water
    1      cup           green lentils
    1      tablespoon    tomato paste
    1      teaspoon      sugar
    1 1/4  teaspoons     salt
                         Freshly ground black pepper
 
 In a large saucepan toss the leek and carrot slices with the olive oil.
 Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, until the vegetables are lightly
 browned, then stir in the remaining ingredients. Cover the pan and simmer
 the mixture for 1 hour, until the lentils are tender and most of the liquid
 has been absorbed. To keep the leek slices intact, do not stir. Serve hot.
 
 Yield: 4 to 6 servings
