I am often on the lookout for lentil recipes. Lentils are so healthy and give you needed protein in your meal without the expense of meat. If you are looking for a way to save on the grocery bill, making meals with lentils and cutting back on meat consumption is one way to do it!
When I came across this stewed lentil recipe, I knew it was one I had to try! I love the flavors of carrots, tomatoes, onions, and garlic together. Adding lentils and rice make it a more filling and wholesome meal!
