Lentil -Tomato Stew – Vegan/Vegetarian

Experiencing cold weather and need something to warm those bones?  Here’s a recipe from Carolyn Aken’s Recipe Corner.

I don’t know about you, but I love lentils and tomatoes, so I know I will enjoy this stew.  Here’s the recipe below:


  • 3 teaspoons organic coconut oil
  • 3 organic carrots, thinly sliced on the bias
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 large organic onion, diced
  • 1 cup organic lentils, rinsed
  • 1 cup organic crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pink Himalayan sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 Tablespoon ground curry
  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1 cup organic shiitake mushrooms (diced)
  • 3 cups organic vegetable broth
  • 1 cup organic frozen sweet peas

How to Prepare

1. In a large saucepan, heat 3 teaspoons of the coconut oil over medium heat. Add the carrots, garlic, and onion.  Cook until softened.

2. Stir in the lentils, tomatoes, salt, cumin, ginger, coriander, curry, sage, and mushrooms. Add 3 cups vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer; cover and cook for 30 minutes or until the lentils are tender.

3. Add the peas to the stew and cook for 2 minutes to heat through.

Serve with Vegan Cornbread.

    My diet is “legume free” – wonder what I can substitute for the lentils and peas?

    Thanks very much for the recipe. It sounds great! My daughter went vegan a couple of months ago, so I’m on the look out for good meal ideas. 🙂

    With that many ingredients, the flavor profiles should run deep and layered…

    Yummmm, I love vegan soup! Why would someone choose to be vegan? Here are two uplifting videos to help everyone understand why so many people are making this life affirming choice: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKr4HZ7ukSE and http://www.veganvideo.org

  5. In India we eat lentils regularly. I think I should give your recipe a try. Lentils have very high protein content.
