Curried Sweet Potato & Lentil Stew

My crockpot has been a rockstar over the last couple weeks and this is a recipe that was requested by a lot of you. So here it is, a CURRIED SWEET POTATO & LENTIL STEW. 

As per most of my recipes, I used what I had on hand in my kitchen so feel free to substitute for any veg you might have hanging out in your fridge. This made a large batch that lasted a couple of days and I froze some to use a bit later when I need a quick meal.

Curried Sweet Potato & Lentil Stew

Ingredients:

  • 3 sweet potatoes
  • 2 cups of lentils {I used french lentils}
  • 2 carrots
  • 3 celery
  • handful of green beans
  • onion
  • 2 cups of water or broth
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • sea salt + black pepper
  • 1 Tsp. turmeric
  • 1 Tbsp. curry powder mix

Method:

  1. Portion out lentils in a glass jar or bowl and cover with water. Let sit overnight.
  2. In the AM rinse your lentils really well in a strainer with water and set aside.
  3. Wash, peel and chop veggies and lay in the slow cooker pot. Note: this could obviously be done the night before too to save more time in the AM.
  4. Add your lentils, spices and garlic. Stir if desired.
  5. Add 2 cups of water or broth.
  6. Start slow cooker. Low for 4-6 hours is enough to cook all the veggies and lentils perfectly.

I served ours with some greek yogurt and fresh parsley which was fabulous and fresh but in hindsight, adding some coconut milk would have been DEVINE.

I am looking forward to a little R + R with my babe and husband this weekend. I've decided the goal is to…

Have a fantastic weekend!

PS. I have officially stopped taking on new clients as I prepare for baby #2 and a bit of a maternity leave. I have started a wait list for new clients when I return in 2015 but for past clients, you will still be able to reach me and access a tune up session whenever you need.
