Squash, Chickpea and Red Lentil Stew

Em posted a new recipe to try. I happened to have most of the ingredients in the house and was looking for a stew/soup recipe to make for someone I know who is bedridden and is looking for some food help. So I tried the Squash, Chickpea and Lentil Stew .
The only changes I made was to use sweet potatoes/yams instead of squash. This gave the stew a little sweet taste along with the spice. I also used a little Paprika in addition to the black pepper.
We really enjoyed the stew. And we were able to save this for dinner on another night too in keeping with my plans to try to eat home more during the week.

I hope that people are continuing to keep the people of Haiti in their thoughts and are giving whatever they can to help the people there.


  1. What the heck is that above???? your version looks so much more appetizing than mine. Will you come make me dinner?

  2. Come spend the summer here with us - I probably won't make too much soup, but we'll find other good things to cook. This was Velu's contribution to make this photo look good!
