Vegetarian Lentil Stew

Delicious! Have you ever just wanted a tasty hearty stew on a cold winter day? Stews are a fantastic way to get all the nutrients you need from all the different types of vegetables you can add. I love to add lentils to my stews. They give it that earthy taste and their an excellent source of protein and fiber, which will help with digestive health.
