I found this recipe on originally, but it didn't have the nutritional information included. We *love* this recipe. The stew has a real kick, is easy to throw together in the morning, and is really satisfying.

Made this today. It's pretty tasty. My two teen boys even ate it with no complaints. Very easy.

This was very quick to throw together and an awesome result! I think next time, I might parboil the lentils for 5-10 minutes before throwing them in, as they were still a little tough after about 9 hours, by which point the potatoes and squash were falling apart. I'm not sure why that happened, since there seemed to be more than enough liquid left in the mixture, but it could just be that my slow cooker isn't always the best utensil. :-/ I'll definitely be making this again throughout the winter. Thanks!
