Serves 6 / Banish the cold weather with this versatile stew, packed with heart-healthy fiber, vitamin C, folate, vitamin A, iron, and B vitamins. Although sweet potatoes are a winter favorite, you can substitute regular yellow or red potatoes. You also can add other wonderful root vegetables, such as beets or parsnips, or a bit of minced ginger for additional warming qualities. If you prefer more protein, add cubes of cooked chicken.
1-1/4 cups lentils, rinsed
1. In a large pot or Dutch oven, combine lentils with 3 cups broth and bring to a low boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, partially cover the pot, and simmer until lentils are barely tender, 20–30 minutes.
