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.
In 4.5- to 6-quart slow cooker bowl, combine celery, onion, squash, lentils, water, broth, rosemary, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Cover slow cooker with lid, and cook as manufacturer directs on low setting for 8 hours.
To serve, spoon lentil stew into serving bowls; top with cheese shavings, and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
