Lentil Stew

20130929-194419.jpg

It is officially Fall which in the VeganMartha kitchen means soups & stews in the slow cooker! I made some delicious lentil stew yesterday.

1 large onion
Several cloves garlic, minced/crushed
Olive oil
2 c lentils
4-6 cups broth
2 medium carrots
2-3 ribs celery
1 large or several small sweet potatoes
28 oz can diced tomato
Thyme, sweet Hungarian paprika, cumin, oregano, chili pepper flakes
Salt & pepper
Spinach

Chop the onion and sauté in olive oil. When it starts to get tender, add the garlic. Then remove from the heat. Chop all the other vegetables. Throw everything in the slow cooker except the spinach. Cook for ~12 hrs on low. Then stir in spinach. Eat, or freeze and eat later. Makes ~8 servings as an entree, lots more as a side/app. Happy Fall!!!
