Yummy Lentils (Who Knew!)

Jul 18
The thing about healthy recipes is that you never really know how they will taste. For me personally, I love to eat healthy but it has to taste good as well! So here’s a recipe that’s very healthy….and tastes like it isn’t!

Coconut Lentil Stew

  • 1 cup green lentils, rinsed
  • 2 large carrots, diced
  • 1 large sweet potato, diced
  • 1 large potato, diced
  • 1 can coconut milk (about 400 mL)
  • coconut oil and grated coconut to garnish
  1. Combine the lentils and carrots into a large stockpot.
  2. Add the can of coconut milk to the stockpot.
  3. Cover the stockpot and cook on medium heat for about 15 minutes, or until the lentils begin to soften.
  4. Add the potatoes and cook for an additional 10 minutes, or until the potatoes begin to soften.
  5. Once the stew has thickened nicely, serve immediately.
  6. Garnish with a dollop of coconut oil and a sprinkling of grated coconut.
In case you haven’t realized by now, I sorta like coconut! What can I say – they’re good for me 😉
