    Louisiana-style chili. Does it get chilly in Louisiana? Spice this one up with some red pepper if you want to. You know I like dat.

      DH and I enjoyed this lentil stew for dinner last night. It was really easy to make and I had all the ingredients on hand. It had nice flavor and was especially good with some grated Parmesan sprinkled on top. We served over brown basmati rice. Perfect for a weeknight meal. Thanks for posting!

      I doubled this for a potluck tonight and everyone really enjoyed it (seconds!). I used veggie broth instead of water, but ohter than that, followed the recipe. This was a great vegetarian dish that i will make again!
