Delicious lentils and vegetable stew

Lentils are rich in fiber, protein and iron. In the Mediterranean kitchen they are on the menu almost weekly. For me, this legume was unknown and so unloved… Not necessary at all, because now I know to appreciate lentils and this legume appears in all kinds of variations in my cooking pot.

A very filling dish that doesn’t need much extra. In Spanish cuisine, cubes of potato and pieces of meat or chorizo are often added. I combine this dish with baked seitan or oven-grilled aubergines.
