This pumpkin lentil stew is surprising. It’s each comforting and vegan!
No offense to the vegans who learn this web site however many individuals don’t conflate veganism and luxury – most likely as a result of vegans don’t eat cheese from animals (or ice cream).
A “stew” often consists of huge piles of meat floating round. This can be a stew – it isn’t made with meat and it’s terrific.
Lentils prepare dinner actually shortly for beans and type of dissolve which makes them creamy and thick – excellent for consolation. I selected pink lentils due to the colour however you possibly can go along with brown or no matter you might have available.
Aren’t they stunning? I discover these often within the Spanish meals part however I purchased these at Complete Meals – so Bob’s Purple Mill it’s.
The pink does make this dish extra visually interesting which is necessary in meals. My son loves an ideal presentation relating to eating. He does complain after I serve him lentils as he solely desires to eat macaroni and cheese (not kidding).
Lentils are a wonderful supply of B nutritional vitamins, iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc. If you add kale, one other dietary powerhouse – you might have a very unimaginable dish.
Attempt my lentil tacos or lentil pasta sauce for different nice lentil choices.
The important thing to creating this stew work is the flavoring brokers. Pumpkin and lentils are bland so to make it work – you want recent ginger, onions, garlic, and curry powder. You additionally must saute them to unleash their potential.
When you do that – the stew won’t be bland and boring!
You need to use no matter broth you might have available when you don’t have vegetable broth. If I’m out of broth, I’ll combine 1/2 white wine with water to substitute.
I serve this with rice or squash, some yogurt, and cilantro or parsley on prime. This pumpkin lentil stew freezes effectively. All stews are higher the subsequent day together with this one.
