It’s Fall ya’ll! That means warm sweaters, pumpkin spice, and yummy soups that warm your soul. This Lentil Stew is one of my family’s favorite go-to recipes when the cool weather starts to roll in. I like to serve it with warm biscuits or bread for a more fulfilling meal. Check out this delicious recipe below.
Lentil Stew is one of my favorite hearty soups that are perfect when the cool weather nights start…which is right about now. It’s a pretty quick recipe that you can throw together in a pinch. I suggest chopping all of the veggies the night before to reduce prep time that way you can get this meal together in about 30 minutes.
