This Easy Lentil Stew is the quintessential fall or winter meal to serve.
A easy Lentil stew versatile enough to add whatever ingredients you like. Lentils are indigenous to Asian countries like India and are cheap and easy to find at the grocery store. They don’t take very long to cook, and provide a good source of protein which can support a clean eating diet. Unlike pasta, do not salt the boiling water when you cook lentils. Lentils will become tough if you add in salt before they are cooked.
This lentil stew recipe is sure to fill you up and is a straightforward vegetarian style meal to help get your daily dose of vegetables in.
Just like other legumes such as black beans, lentil is a must-have to keep in your pantry. The most common type of lentils are brown lentils. These are considered the best for soups and stews. If you have red or yellow lentils, these will cook in about 10 to 15 minutes and are another good choice for soups and stews. However, red lentils tend to become mushy since their outer seed coat is removed.
