Creamy Lentil & Squash Stew

November 18, 2014

Creamy Lentil & Squash Stew

A simple bean stew that tastes delicious. The peppery lentils are balanced by the deliciously sweet squash and onion, all simmered together in a bubbling stew creating a warm comforting dish.

Ingredients

Method

  1. Place the onion and squash in a heavy based pot and add the miso bouillon stock.
  2. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook over low heat 10-15 minutes (until squash is soft), adding more water if required.
  3. Stir in the lentils and cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Most of the liquid should be absorbed and the stew should be creamy.
  5. Remove from heat and sprinkle lightly with the shoyu and balsamic vinegar to your desired taste.
  6. Mix well, transfer to a bowl and serve hot with your choice of Clearspring quick cooked grain, and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Or simply serve with warmed pitta bread or sourdough bread.
