Lentil stew…


Want to prepare something different from everyday lunch? You’re used to meat and ordinary recipes? Make a stew, your way. This time, I made delicious stew from ingredients I had at home. Avoiding meat, avoiding store vist. Just me, my imagination and ingredients I already have.

Base of this stew will be lentil and leek. I will combine two different types of lentil in this recipe. Green lentil (the common one) and black beluga lentil which I prefer in front of green lentil. When cooked it doesn’t become soft an soggy, it holds its consistency and taste.

By adding more vegetables and spices flavor and complexity of this dish is more and more profound. Try to make similar dish for yourself with your twist and suprise yourself how tasteful vegetables only dish can be. Enjoy.
