This stew has a very nice flavor, and is so good for you with all those veggies and lentils! Thought the oregano and tomato would give it an Italian taste but it has it's own flavor, just like any other stew you would make. I like that you can add whatever vegetables you have on hand, though for my first try at this I used exactly the veggies listed. I halved the recipe and still had plenty... this makes a BIG potful. I'd love to make this again with lots more vegetables.
