Sweet Potato, Quinoa, and Red Lentil Stew [Vegan]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
This isn't your typical lentil stew — the addition of sweet potato and quinoa not only boosts this recipe's nutritional profile, but they also adds a textural counterpoint to the soft red lentils. This recipe is versatile, too. Yellow potatoes or carrots could easily stand in for the sweet potatoes and, if you prefer a creamier soup, a splash of coconut milk will do the trick. Just don't leave out the lemon juice!

Sweet Potato, Quinoa, and Red Lentil Stew [Vegan]

High Carb VeganVegan

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 medium-sized yellow onion, diced
  • 1/2-inch knob ginger, minced
  • 1-2 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 3 small sweet potatoes, chopped into small chunks
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 15-ounce can tomato sauce (or puree)
  • 2 cup red lentils
  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Diced scallions or chopped cilantro, for serving

Preparation

  1. In a large stockpot, heat the coconut oil over medium heat and sauté the garlic for 30 seconds or so. Add onion and ginger and sauté for another 5 minutes, or until the onion is translucent. Add spices and sweet potatoes and stir until the sweet potatoes are well-coated.
  2. Add the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, red lentils, quinoa, and two cups of the water and bring to a boil. Turn heat to low and let simmer for 25-30 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are fully cooked and the lentils are soft. Check every 10 minutes and add extra water in half cupfuls if necessary.
  3. When the sweet potatoes and lentils are fully cooked, turn off the heat. Add salt and pepper as desired. Stir in most of the lemon juice, reserving some for serving. Ladle into soup bowls and garnish with the leftover lemon juice, freshly ground pepper, and diced scallions or chopped cilantro.

There is not enough liquid to cook two cups of dried red lentils. Add in the half cup of quinoa and increases the deficit.
I made it last night and I got glop. It was decent tasting glop and whole lot of it. I would make the lemon optional. I did think it added anything to it.
