Delicious Red Lentil Stew

When the weather gets cold, the only meal I can think of makig is SOUP of course! ...and lot's of it. My specialty, lentil soup, it's simple and always comes out delicious. Recently I have moved on over from using green lentils to making stews with RED LENTILS. Some yogi's may say that red lentils are better for the Ayurvedic type 'Vatta', I simply enjoy the new flavors, but the Vatta benefits never hurt either.

So here I am, happy to share this wonderful, warm recipe with you! But first, the ingredients...

  • 1lb uncooked red lentils
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1.5 cup frozen corn
  • salt and pepper
  • paparika and curry powder
  • 2 vegan bouillon blocks

 

Why eat LENTILS??! I'll tell you why: BECAUSE THEY ARE PACKED WITH FIBER, FOLATE, MAGNESIUM, IRON, MOLYBDENUM AND PROTEIN.

 

Cooking Method! This recipe serves 4+ people (i only cook for two, so I get A LOT of left overs)

 

  1. Rinse lentils thoroughly
  2. Place in a large pot and fill with water; water should sit 1 inch above the lentils
  3. Bring water to a boil
  4. Add veggies and bouillon blocks
  5. Make sure bouillon dissolves completely
  6. Season with salt, pepper, paprika and curry powder
  7. Let it cook on low-med heat until veggies are tender.
  8. Serve with a slice of toast!

    Voted. This sounds amazing! I actually have a lot of lentils sitting in my cupboard at home, not knowing what to do with them, so thanks a lot for this recipe! I also really like red lentils because they are a lot quicker to prepare and cook than the green ones. You might be interested in my latest blog, Go Vegan and Feed The World!, and if you like it, please vote. :-)

        I made this for dinner tonight and it was AWESOME! I used green lentils rather than red, as that was what I had in the cupboard, but I will use red ones next time, maybe that will be even better! So thanks a lot for this recipe. I don't think you need to add any extra salt to it though, as bouillon is quite salty anyway. I love lentils. Another blogger on this site mentioned that she made lentil patties, quite a while back: I asked her to share the recipe, but I don't think she has been here for a while. If anyone else knows how to make lentil patties, please do share!

            You can probably find a recipe on the internet. I must admit, I haven't looked yet, I kept meaning to. But if you find one first please do share the recipe, they sound delicious! Especially as an alternative to a meat patty in a hamburger. PS You might like my latest recipe, Maggie's Creamy Vegetable Macaroni, please check it out! (vegan, despite the title!)
