Meatless Monday Lentil Stew

Mar 2014

Cold, wet, rainy weekends call for some comfort food.  Meatless Monday lentil stew is one of my go to winter warmers.  Even though we are supposed to be transitioning into spring, Mother Nature hasn’t been paying attention. Served with delicious cheesy corn muffins {great for dipping} you’ll have a house full of happy campers.

Add the greens 10 minutes before serving.  Mix the greek yogurt with lemon peel and juice.  Serve soup with a dollop of the yogurt on top.  I made a cheddar corn muffin to dunk in the lovely broth.
