Warming orient-spiced fall stew with lots of veggies
When fall hits it’s stew time for me, so I’ve been making lots of different ones lately because they are also perfect to take to the office as lunch the next day (or five, in my case 😉 ).
This is a boldly spiced orient-inspired vegetarian lentil stew, which is sweet because of raisins and pomegranate, spicy due to chili and has all these great spices that will warm you up from the inside. Also, there are lots of veggies inside and it’s quick and easy to prepare – perfect when you come home at night, don’t feel like doing anything too fancy yet healthy.
Also, this is a great healthy dish to make if you are on a budget (maybe just leave out the pomegranate seeds).
You can eat this stew without any side dishes, since lentils are very nourishing. However, I like it best with some couscous or bulgur.
