I found this recipe in a magazine article that touted it as a miracle fat-burning stew. Always on the look out for a miracle to help with weight control, I tried it and have made it several times, tweaking it to my families' tastes. I cannot vouch for its fat-burning properties, but it is tasty, high fiber and low fat. Try it, you might like it, especially if you like lentils and vegetables. This freezes well.
