Rosana's Red Lentil Veggie Bean stew

March 30, 2019

The thing I love most about my vegan friend Rosana, a member of our free 

Plant-Empowered Woman Facebook Group, most is that she cooks amazing dishes by heart...from her heart. Only problem is, that means there's usually not a recipe that she can give you to tell you how to make it. So, today, I nailed her down in her kitchen for a segment of my "Cook, Chat & Chow Down" video series so I could get the recipe to this beautiful Red Lentil Veggie Bean Stew.

 

If you want to watch us make this in action and hear how Rosana overcame a pre-diabetes diagnosis, high cholesterol, overweight and suffering from Rosacea, plus lots of fun cooking tips and tricks (including reading some labels), join us in the video replay of the recent livestream we did in the group!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vegan Cooking Level: Beginner

 

Ingredients

 

7 garlic cloves, minced

1/4 cup curly parsley

2 carrots, diced

3 red potatoes, cubed, skin on

4 cups veggie broth (one 32 oz. container)

1/2 cup red lentils, rinsed

1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed

1 whole green pepper, diced

1 whole red pepper, diced

1 can great northern beans (or white beans, your choice)

1 can pin, pinto or kidney beans (your choice)

1 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp smoked paprika

1/2 tsp. chili powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

optional: 1/3 cup TVP (textured vegetable protein)

optional: handful of raw spinach

 

How To:

 

Step 1:  Saute the garlic and the parsley in a couple teaspoons veggie broth until the garlic softens, about 5 minutes on low-medium heat.

 

 

Step 2: Add all the rest of the ingredients, except the spinach, to the pot at the same time and simmer for 30 minutes on the stove on low-medium.

 

Step 3: Stir vigorously and feel free to use an immersion blender to gently pulse to smooth the texture a bit, if desired. Add spinach to the pot at the end of cooking and after any blending so it wilts from the heat.

 

InstantPot Instructions: Set the pot to "saute" and follow step 1, above. Then follow step 2, except reduce liquid by 1/2 cup. Place the lid with the vent knob in the "sealed" position. Push your "Soup" button and walk away until your unit beeps and starts counting up from "L". Use the natural release method for 10 minutes, release the rest of the pressure and open up your pot. Follow step 3, above and enjoy!

 

Cilantro Lime Rice

 

Ingredients

 

3 cups cooked white rice, any type

1 lime, cut in half

1/4 cup to 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped finely (can sub parsley if you do not like cilantro!)

 

Add the chopped cilantro (1/4 cup to a 1/2 cup, depending on your tastes)  to the rice just before serving (Rosana says cilantro will turn brown if stored in the fridge mixed in the rice). Squeeze the lime juice over the mixture using just half or a whole lime, depending on your tastes. Stir to mix. Enjoy!
