Lentil Stew With Butternut Squash

READY IN: 8hrs 20mins
Recipe by BB2011

Good Housekeeping January 2009 This flavorful vegetarian stew is perfect for a heary evening meal. I recommend making savory dumplings to put in the stew. You will NOT be disappointed! It requires a slow cooker, but is so worth the wait.

This was really easy to throw together in the morning and serve up in the evening. What I did think needed to be changed up was perhaps some more seasoning. In particular,I think garlic would work really well with this dish. My husband did really love the meal and I know we will make a version of it again but with some changes. Made for PAC Spring 2010.
