Lentils are a wonderful option for those looking to add more protein to their diets, especially for vegetarians and vegans. Requiring no soaking before cooking, as opposed to other types of legumes, lentils can be a quick dinner option. Seasoned with cumin and bay leaves, these lentils are cooked with potatoes and carrots for a hearty lentil stew that would make a great lunch or dinner during the winter time. Serve with crusty bread for dipping.

Ingredients

  • olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 2 potatoes (peeled and cubed)
  • 2 carrots (peeled and cubed)
  • 1 onion (small, peeled)
  • 4 tablespoons crushed tomatoes
  • 350 grams lentils (Pardinas, or any other small size lentil that does not need to be soaked before cooking)
  • 1.5 liters chicken stock
  • 1 bay leaf
  • salt

Directions

  1. Coat the bottom of a Dutch oven with olive oil and heat it up.
  2. Add the cumin and stir a few seconds until it becomes fragrant. Then add the potatoes, carrots, onion, crushed tomatoes, and lentils. Stir to mix well.
  3. Add the chicken or vegetable stock and the bay leaf. Salt to taste. Bring to a boil then simmer on low heat for 45 minutes.
