Prepare an ice-water bath; set aside. Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Blanch snap peas until bright green and crisp-tender, about 1 minute. Immediately transfer with a slotted spoon to ice-water bath to stop the cooking. Drain.
Transfer to a serving bowl. Add pea shoots, snap peas, lettuce, and radishes; set aside.
Prepare Warm Dressing
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Arrange pancetta in skillet in a single layer; cook, turning once, until crisp, about 12 minutes. Transfer with tongs to paper towels to drain.
Pour off all but 2 tablespoons fat (if skillet seems dry, add enough oil to total 2 tablespoons fat). Add onions; cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until tender, about 4 minutes. Add wine; cook until most of liquid has evaporated, about 2 minutes. Add cream, and cayenne, if desired. Cook until liquid is reduced by half, about 4 minutes.
Pour warm cream dressing over greens; toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper, and top with reserved pancetta.
Heat a large Dutch oven over medium to high heat. Coat the bottom with olive oil, then add the onion, carrots, and celery and cook until crisp-tender.
Add the lentils, potatoes and chicken or vegetable stock, starting out with about 6 cups. Stir in the wine. Add the bay leaf and thyme. Let come to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook uncovered until lentils are tender and done, about 1 1/2 hours. *Be careful to watch the liquid level and add more stock as needed. Stir occasionally. Add salt and pepper to taste.
When lentils are done, mash the potatoes against the side of the pan with a spoon then stir them. This will make it creamy. Stir in the turnip and mustard greens. Let come to a boil again, then simmer for about 30 minutes.
Top with a scoop of brown rice and sprinkle with fresh parsley. Enjoy!
We suggest that replacing white rice with brown rice is a healthier option.

We saved green beans for day 30 of #vegout2021 With dozens of cultivars, from broad, meaty Roma to thin, delicate French filet beans, pods can be round or flat, and come in multiple colors: green, purple, yellow, or mottled, so they don't have to be a predictable choice.
