Lentil and Mushroom Stew

Dinner, Lunch, Main Dish, Vegan

Lentil and Mushroom Stew is an absolutely delicious comfort food that will satisfy the fiercest appetite on a chilly day.  It is full of flavor from an ingredient combination that includes sautéed vegetables like mushrooms, green pepper and white onions, along with some green lentils.   Soy sauce along with some key spices added a distinctive flavor to the stew.  I served this over quinoa but you can also serve it over mashed potatoes.

Mom’s Organic is another great place to buy fresh veggies and baking ingredient’s.  Their assortment of fresh produce is outstanding.  Check out my Shop Page for a nice selection of kitchen essentials like slicers, cutting boards, food prep bowls and more.
