Spinach Lentil Stew
When my children requested more vegetarian dishes, this chunky stew became a favorite. Red wine vinegar perks up the flavor and carrots add color. We like to ladle helpings over cooked rice. —Alice McEachern of Surrey, British Columbia
Lentil Soup with Chard
Lentils and chard are tasty partners in soup recipes. In fact, lentils pair well with all kinds of greens—from sweet spinach to pungent broccoli rabe, turnip greens, and mustard greens. Adding the chard toward the end of cooking keeps the color bright.
Meatiest Vegetarian Chili From Your Slow Cooker
This is one of the best, easiest, and tastiest vegetarian chili recipes I've ever tasted. Whenever I make it, my friends devour it. Best eaten with tortilla chips, Cheddar cheese, guacamole, and sour cream. What a treat!
Warm roasted squash and Puy lentil salad
This fresh and vibrant salad makes use of tinned lentils, a store cupboard staple. The result is filling, low-fat and contains all of your five-a-day
Cavolo Nero and Cannellini Bean Soup
A solid Tuscan-style soup includes an Italian variety of kale, cavolo nero, that has crinkly leaves and a near-spicy bite (look for the green at farmers' markets or gourmet groceries); the dish gets significant protein from cannellini beans.
Fava beans are traditional in this stew, which we updated with edamame. You can also substitute green peas for the edamame, if you like. Scoop up the thick stew with Teff Injera Bread or pita. Halve the portion if you'd like to serve this as a hearty side dish.
