Author Notes: This lentil-based stock makes a surprisingly tasty broth that looks and tastes like it's made with chicken. Although it qualifies as vegan, it could even fool a meat eater. It's fast and easy to make and can be used wherever chicken broth is called for, or as a warm treat on its own.Wags
