Potato Lentil Stew

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by RGVeggie

I created this recipe after I had made an Ethiopian dish and had leftover potatoes and lentils. It's a simple but tasty "earthy" meal.

"Earthy" is the perfect word for it! The spices are a very nice combination. I doubled them as well, because I love a lot of flavor). I didn't have any fresh tomatoes handy, so I used a 1/4 cup of salsa instead, figuring it's still tomatoes and it adds a little onion and extra spice. I boiled most of the water away, thinking I'd make it more stewy and less soupy, but this made it a bit dry. Next time I'll either add a little more salsa to keep it moist, or keep some of the water and keep it soupy. Very good, very quick, and very healthy. Thanks!
