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


  1. 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.

  2. Add in the baby arugula and add black pepper to taste.

  3. Can eat as alone as a stew, serve it over potatoes or rice.
