Lentil Stew in the Crockpot

A weekly standard in our house is lentil stew. It is great as a stand alone dish or along side a main course (i.e. burgers, steak, chicken). Sound difficult? Wrong, my toddler can practically make this dish on his own. Put the following in your crock pot:
  • one bag of lentils;
  • bullion cube (veggie or meat, your choice);
  • one chopped onion;
  • 1 cup chopped carrot;
  • 1 cup chopped celery;
  • 1 bay leaf;
  • dash of cummin; and
  • fill to the top with water.
Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours. Freezers very well, and tastes great warmed up. As the veggie start to come in you can add others: spinach, potatoes, summer squash, etc.
