Moe? What Time Will Dinner Be Ready? OmNomNom Red Lentil Stew

OmNomNom Red Lentil Stew

Vegan Red Lentil Stew packed with delish veggies and EXPLODING with flavor!

* For this recipe i actually consulted a cook book (gasp! shocker, I know). The real recipe came from the AMAZING book Vegan A Go-Go by the SPECTACULAR Sarah Kramer (my vegan cooking idol).

Unforch, being a college kid/ novice in the kitchen/ not properly prepared we didn’t have half of the things the recipe called for. So below find my interpretation of Kramers “Cauliflower Red Lentil Soup”. And if you’re feeling brave I DARE YOU to tackle this delish dish and make it your own too!

What You Need:

  • 1 Medium Onion
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 3 tbsp fresh ginger
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • 2 tsp Turmeric
  • 4 1/2 cups veggie stock
  • 4 cups Assorted Veggies (I used a frozen mixture of broccoli, cauliflower, & red and yellow carrots)
  • 2 medium Tomatoes
  • 1 bag Dry Red Lentils

The Cooking:

  1. Dice Onion, Tomatoes, and Garlic and grate the ginger. Pre cook veggies until a bit tender but do not let them become overly soft.
  2. In a large pot on medium heat combine oil and onion. Heat onion until it becomes translucent.
  3. Add ginger, garlic, cumin, rep pepper flakes, and turmeric. Cook for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly so that the mixture does not stick.
  4. Add the veggie stock, veggies, tomatoes, and lentils. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and cover. Cook for about 25 minutes or until lentils and veggies are adequately cooked.
  5. Remove from heat and let sit for about 5 minutes before serving.
