I made this delicious herby spinach lentil stew last week when the sky was grey and I needed some delicious soul soothing comfort food.
This glorious green stew completely hit the spot – green lentils, courgette, spinach and lots of lovely thyme. A squeeze of lemon for freshness and dollop of coconut yogurt for richness..
As the stew is quite earthy I like to add a fresh and creamy mint coconut dip which melts into the warm stew.
As I had some broccoli which needed using up so I thought it would be the perfect addition, roasted with some oil and sea salt until crispy. Delicious! But don’t worry if you don’t want to add this – the stew is fantastic on its own.
The fluffy spelt flatbreads soak up at the stew juices but any fresh bread would be perfect.
- Spelt flour – One of my favourites. But this would be great with quality plain, wholemeal or rye.
- Lentils – I used green lentils here. You can swap for Puy, brown or mung beans.
- Coconut yogurt/cream – Works brilliantly to add creaminess but you can also use any thick and creamy plantbased yogurt or oat cream
