Vegan Stew

A recipe from Bon Appetit that was waiting to be made for a long time was tried tonight.

Look at this picture - How could this stew not turn out delicious and good for you. Feeling generous tonight, so here's the recipe.

2 Tbs olive oil
1 onion, 2 carrots, 1 celeriac, 1 turnip - all chopped (I added potatoes too)
1 lb brown lentils
8 cups vegetable broth
1 large bunch kale, chopped

Heat oil and add all the vegetables, sprinkle with salt and pepper (I used lovage and pepper).

Saute for 10 minutes. Stir in lentils, 1 Tbs dried herbs, broth and kale.

Bring to boil stirring to incorporate the kale. Reduce heat, cover with lid slightly ajar, and simmer for about 30 minutes.

An excellent source of fibre, iron and protein; and easy to make.

Served at somerville kitchen with a new bread discovery from Urban Fair - an Urban Ficelle Loaf.

Difficult to describe, unique for sure, and was an excellent accompaniment to the stew.
