Seriously the best…

Stew I have EVER tasted.  (Ok, besides the goulash my babysitter made when I was like 4).

I got the idea from one of my favorite blogs: Sweettoothsweetlife.  She had made a lentil soup and I explored the link she gave and found this bad boy!

Vegetable Lentil Stew: (From Taste of Home)

  • 4 cups tomato juice
  • 2 cans (reg size) diced tomatoes (mine had little peppers in them!)
  • 1 can (reg size) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (reg size) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 3 carrots, sliced
  • 2 medium potatoes, cubed
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup dried lentils
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • 2 tbsps chili powder
  • 2 tsps dried basil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 bag fresh spinach

Sooo many ingredients!

Combine all the ingredients (except the spinach) into a HUGE pot–mine almost overflowed.  I was getting nervous!  Bring to a boil and then cover, lower heat, and simmer for 35-40 minutes.  Stir occasionally!  At the end of the simmering, the veggie’s, lentils, and potatoes should be tender.  Stir in the spinach until mixed and wilted (like a minute)!


We enjoyed this with some bread and a sprinkle of cheese!

So freakin' good & great for the cold day!

Obviously, we had a TON of leftover since it was just the 2 of us.  We def froze it for later! 🙂
