Simple, frugal lentils are the base of this hearty lentil stew that will leave you happily satisfied. Not only because it tastes great, but because it delivers a healthy dose of solid nutrition.
Since going gluten-free/grain-free, I’ve been following the specific carbohydrate diet for the most part (a special gluten-free, grain-free diet for those with chronic conditions, such as celiac, crohn’s, ulcerative colitis, etc.). Happily, lentils are on the “legal” list and for good reason – they are an inexpensive powerhouse of nutrition.
When properly prepared through soaking, lentils are an excellent source of B vitamins and minerals like iron, phosphorus, potassium and zinc. And, pairing them with homemade bone broth provides even more nutritional support, as well as greatly enhances their flavor.
Eating food this delicious, nutritious and heart warming brings a smile to my face, and my family’s too – that’s the best part of all!
