Spicy Lentil Stew

Spicy Lentil Stew

This is a super easy vegan dish that makes itself.  If you want a true vegan dish, just skip the topping suggestions.


15 oz can diced tomatoes or 2 tomatoes diced

15 oz can chickpeas, rinsed and drained

5 cups vegetable stock or broth

2 cups lentils

1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped

1 tsp garlic powder or minced garlic

1 tsp basil

1 tsp thyme

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp salt

½ tsp black pepper

Directions:  Combine all ingredients into a slow cooker and stir to combine.  Cook covered on low heat for about 6-8 hours.  Makes 6 servings.  This is super yummy with some unsweetened greek yogurt or light sour cream &/or a sprinkling of parmesan cheese.  *Nutrition facts do not include toppings.
