Southwest Potato Lentil Stew

Total Time

Another lentil favorite in our home, even with the kiddos! Originally from the "Lean, Luscious, and Meatless" cookbook. I use less onion and usually add in a bit of cumin and ground flax, and typically shred the carrots as they cook down more and 'disguise' a little better for the kids. Great winter night stew!

We love this recipe! My 12 yo stepson asks for it every week! We like to eat this over jasmine rice. It's a nice, hearty, meal! Thanks for posting!

YUM! I didn't have any potatoes in the house, so I used some hash browns from the freezer. I also added (my favorite spice) cilantro. The I threw it all in the crock pot for the day! Thank you!

Thanks for the delicious recipe! I made this for my non-vegetarian family and they loved it. (Usually they resist my vegetarian tendencies!) Even my two year olds gobbled it up. Like other reviewers, I increased the portion and made a couple small changes: celery (in lieu of just leaves) and beans. I topped it with a little light sour cream and served over rice. It was so easy. filling and yummy. I'll definitely make it again.
