    Bec's Note:

    If you're a spinach lover, you're gonna love this hearty stew! Choose plump-looking lentils and discard any that are shriveled or have spots.

      Wholeheartedly impressed with this! Super easy and sooooo tasty. I used green lentils, 14oz can diced tomatoes, 2 stalks celery in place of carrots, added 1 cup cooked balsamic rice, and held the salt and pepper until soup was individually served. I also used the Fennel Spice Rub, which is found on the zaar, for the fennel seeds - adds a little kick! So does the balsamic vinegar, and I love the spinach here...what more can I say, this is likely one of THE nicest spinach lentil soups/stews I've prepared yet. Thank you, Bec.

      I'm not a vegitarian but I do like "non meat" dishes. This was good served over rice with a tortilla. Had plenty leftovers for future enjoyment. Thanks Bec
