Quinoa, Carrot and Lentil Stew

Quinoa, Carrot and Lentil Stew created by Jennifer Lester Mul

This recipe is based on one from Patricia Green’s and Carolyn Hemming’s book, Quinoa 365. The intro states, “The lentil is said to be one of the first domesticated crops, dating back to prehistoric times. An important component of any vegetarian diet, lentils are high in protein and often used as a meat substitute. To make this recipe a soup rather than a stew, reduce the thickness by precooking the quinoa, then adding it to the soup.”

    The flavour needs tweaking in my opinion, but I might make this again. I'd like to know the original recipe, since Chef Mersaydees says she adapted it from elsewhere.

    This is a simple stew, I'm never turned that thick as other reviewers stated. After the first boil, I only cooked as directed, 20 minutes total. I used 3 can of chicken broth and 1 of vegetable which I thought gave this a nice flavor. Thank you for posting. Made for Group 2 - Pine Melon Crush from the Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap #71
