As a kid, I didn’t grow up eating beans and lentils. It wasn’t part of our diet at all. I started eating them in NYC a few years back and started cooking them very recently.
I find legumes very satisfying and filling. As a vegetarian, I am often missing my protein and this stew, believe it or not, offers 40 of protein per portion!
This is a very easy recipe as all you need to do is throw in the ingredients. The more it cooks, the tastier it gets.
To add some flavors to the beans and lentils, they are mixed with some of my favorite spices, paprika and cumin, and also tomatoes and mushrooms. How delicious is that??
