Lentil Stew

Some nights when it comes time to make dinner, I hit starvation city and dinner becomes a veggie burger and baked potato kind of situation. Tonight, however, I was poised and ready to go for lentil stew and was reminded that cooking during the week doesn’t have to be complicated or take forever. Tonight’s meal was satisfying, healthy and I have enough to get me through the rest of the week so if I do hit starvation city, I won’t have to dive for the freezer. Jackpot.

Lentil Stew
I bag of lentils
Vegetable broth
4 carrots
1 red pepper
I can cannellini beans
5 leaves of kale
Salt & pepper

Boil the lentils in the vegetable broth, then add the carrots. Cook for 20 minutes and then add everything else. Season to taste. Cook until lentils have softened and add water until you get the consistency you want- I like mine more stew like but you could definitely add more water or broth to get soup.
