Apricot Red Lentil Stew

This is one of my staple recipes. I love the sweetness of the (dried) apricots in this hearty stew from Color Me Vegan. With 17 grams protein, 7 grams of fat and only 364 calories per serving, this recipe provides two full dinners and two full lunches. It is soy-free, wheat-free, and oil-free if you saute using water (which I often do).

The recipe doesn’t call for spinach, but I take every opportunity I can to incorporate greens into our food because they are so incredibly healthy. So I threw in about four handfulls of baby spinach with 5-10 minutes left to go in cooking time. It shrinks down and you barely know it is there.

Usually we eat this as a standalone meal, but tonight we ate it with home-made Black Bean and Portobello Burgers that we had pre-made and stored in the freezer.
