Plant-Based Recipes Cookbook
If you’re ready to experience the taste of delicious plant-based recipes, look no further than the “Quick and Delicious Plant-Based Recipes” cookbook.
Old-Fashioned Green Lentil Stew
- 1 cup green lentils, rinsed and drained
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 medium carrots, chopped
- 2 celery stalks, chopped
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp dried rosemary
- 6 cups vegetable broth
- salt and black pepper to taste
- In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onions, garlic, carrots, and celery, and sauté for 5-7 minutes until the vegetables are soft and the onions are translucent.
- Add the green lentils to the pot, along with the dried rosemary, vegetable broth, salt, and black pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 45-50 minutes, or until the lentils are tender and the stew is thick and flavorful.
- Serve the stew hot with crusty bread or over a bed of steamed rice.
- Use high-quality green lentils for the best flavor and texture. Look for lentils that are uniform in size and color, and avoid any that look wrinkled or discolored.
- For a richer and more flavorful broth, use homemade vegetable broth instead of store-bought.
- If you prefer a thicker stew, use a potato masher or immersion blender to mash some of the lentils and vegetables.
- For a more complex flavor profile, add other spices like cumin, coriander, or paprika.
- Leftover stew can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Reheat the stew on the stove or in the microwave, adding a bit of water or broth to thin it out if necessary.

Cooking Lentils at Home is A Breeze!
➡️ Cooking lentils is so easy that can be done even with kids around and is a fantastic way to introduce them to basic cooking skills. It’s also a healthy activity, since lentils are high in fiber and protein and low in fat, and it’s a great way to get your kids to eat their vegetables.
➡️ Cooking lentils enables you to make healthy and delicious dishes! I’m always on the lookout for new ways to cook lentils, as they are one of my favorite legumes. I particularly like to cook them with other ingredients, such as vegetables or other legumes, since they absorb the other flavors. If you need additional info, read more on lentils!
