This was really tasty and I'm not even a huge lentil fan! I'm vegetarian so I used water and vegetable bouillon cubes instead of chicken broth and used Italian seasoning instead of the parsley and basil. Next time I think I will use a little less lentils and more root vegetables.
Seriously amazing flavor AND a hearty vegetarian stew in one! I served the stew with a drizzle of olive oil - the olive oil helps the body pick up and process the lycopene in the tomatoes. Then again, the stew's minimal fat content is also a fabulous excuse to make a homemade bread and serve with a generous slather of organic butter. YUM! This one-pot meal will definitely be placed into regular rotation in my household... have already squirreled away left overs in the freezer and am eagerly awaiting the next cold day. Thank you for a fantastic, tasty and filling stew!
Easy and very tasty. Since we are vegetarians I used vegetable broth and, as per comments, doubled the carrots, onions and potato. Had no parsley and added some extra garlic. Don't omit the basil. It takes a while to simmer but it's still an easy weeknight meal. Highly recommended.
This is good, inexpensive, and easy. We left out the garlic (by mistake) but I think it really needed it. Otherwise, a great weeknight staple. Thanks Mimi in Maine....
It's a common occurrence for me to crave this recipe. I LOVE it. It's really incredibly easy and quick to make and it fits nicely in my student budget. I've made it quite a few times now and adore it.
Really great, hearty, healthy recipe!I doubled the recipe and it made a lot!! But, I'll love having this on hand for a quick meal this week. Thanks for sharing the recipe!!
Great comfort food. I've made this stew many times now. It does not disappoint!
Made this stew for lunch on a chilly fall day. DH is not a lentil fan but ate it anyways, on the other hand I enjoyed it. It was a filling inexpensive meal that was served with crackers. Thank you!
making this stew now. I doubled the recipe.. added a sweet potato too, and a heaping tbs of brown sugar.. I always add BS to my Lentil soup... My Italian Mother In-law makes the best Lentil soup I ever tasted.. that is a little tricks of hers.. so I always add to mine, and this is a Stoup.... Yumo!!!!!
