Hot Lentil Stew for a cold night
Plantstrong has a Rustic Black Lentil Stew that I used for the basis of this one.
I used the Instant Pot to prepare this. It can easily be created in a large pot on the stove as well. With a few basic ingredients and spices, you have a yummy stew in less than half an hour.
1 lb little potatoes (I used the variety pack from the Little Potato Company)
1 C brown lentils
1 -15 oz can fire roasted no salt tomatoes
1 medium yellow onion - diced
6 C water
1/2 C nutritional yeast
1 t cumin
1 t chili powder
1 t garlic
2 t Bragg's aminos
2 t smoked paprika
1 T French thyme
12 oz baby arugula
Black pepper to taste
Put all ingredients except for the baby arugula and pepper into instant pot and set on manual for 11 minutes. I did a slow, natural release.
Add in the baby arugula and add black pepper to taste.
Can eat as alone as a stew, serve it over potatoes or rice.
