Spiced Lentil Stew | Nourish | Sara Bradford


One of my absolute favourite things in the world to eat is any Lentil Stew type thing. But especially Spiced Lentil Stew. So comforting. So easy. So inexpensive. So quick to whip up. So grounding. So delicious. And a great way to use up a few market vegetables you likely always have on hand. Whether it’s got french flavours or has a curry flair.

I love THIS spiced lentil stew.  I always feel good after eating a bowl. The spices are warming and great for digestion. And the creaminess from the coconut is so soothing. Especially nice on a sort of cool but sort of warm Fall Day.

This spiced lentil stew is one of a GAZILLION delicious, rooting, warming recipes on the Fall Dump — check it out 🙂
