A Middle Eastern stew which can be served over lemony brown rice or quinoa - a side of Greek yogurt brings up the protein count for vegetarians - a good thing, right? Canned lentils may be used for quicker cooking or dried which takes about an hour to soften them. I use dried in this recipe
Combine water and lentils in a large skillet or saucepan over high heat, then lower the heat to medium. Skim off foam. Cover and simmer until lentils are tender, about 1 hour.
Add green beans to lentils along with the rest of the vegetables. Cook until all vegetables are tender about 25 minutes.
Add the seasonings. Cook for 5 more minutes.
Serve over 1/2 cup brown rice or quinoa or with a slice of Ezekiel bread.
Good to bring to work next day for lunch. Enjoy!
