If you are looking for a quick and easy meal for you and your family then this Simple Lentil Stew is the recipe for you. Not only it is nutritious, it is also done in no time. So kind of like an instant meal. Great, right!

Lentils were the first thing I started experimenting with when I first decided to stop eating meat. They are highly nutritious and the best friend for those with busy life. Back then I had two jobs so lentils were really my best friend!
