  • rinse the split lentils and remove any impurities if necessary
  • you can replace red lentils with green lentils if you don’t have at hand this ingredient
  • it’s recommended to use butternut pumpkin because it’s sweeter, but you can also use other varieties of pumpkin for this recipe
  • use both yellow and red onions to reduce onion acidity
  • bake the pumpkin in the previous evening or in the morning to save cooking time
  • you can replace tomato puree with tomato broth, but don’t forget to reduce the water amount accordingly
  • don’t use an excessive amount of water at the beginning because the stew will be watery, it should cover the solid ingredients with about 2-3 fingers
  • serve the red lentil stew as a main course or as a side dish next to fried sausages, roast pork, and so on
  • you can turn this vegan version into a more consistent food by adding smoked sausage when you start boiling the stew, sliced into thicker pieces
  • sprinkle over the stew some fresh chopped greenery for more flavor
