Lentil Ragout

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by WI Cheesehead

From the local paper. Any lentil can be substituted for this dish. The green lentils hold their shape better. Haven't tried it yet, but it looks like the carrots may come out pretty crisp. I would probably cut them smaller and cook them longer, since I don't like crunchy cooked vegetables.

This was a good vegetarian meal. We really liked the addition of fresh peas and green onions which perked up the stew. I had to add more of all the seasonings at the end to make it flavorful enough for us.
