Recipe: Moroccan Stewed Lentils

Autumn is here for real and so I'm looking for new, creative, healthy ways to stay warm. In the colder months I love making hearty soups and stews but sometimes you want something with a little bite to it so that you feel a little more satisfied. Cue the lentils.

Lentils are a great addition to your soups because they are full of protein and you have to  chew them. To me, that makes a huge difference in how slowly I eat and how satisfied I feel.

Today, I'm sharing my recipe for Moroccan Stewed Lentils. This is a great meal to make when you're prepping lunches or dinners for the week. It requires a bit of simmer time (about 20 minutes) so you'll want to be cooking or prepping something else while it works. 

This is a great dish to eat hot or cold. I love to take it for lunch on the go and warm up the lentils and then add them to a green salad for a healthy and fulfilling meal.

Hope you enjoy this recipe and the finished product! Let me know what you think by sending my a tweet or message on Instagram @angeliesood
