Description

Sometimes all you need is a deeply satisfying bowl of stew. There’s just something comforting about this ultimate comfort food — the fact that this rendition is vegan is just a welcome perk. The spiciness of harissa plays with the heartiness of lentils, and dark kale greens get in on the fun, too. Of course we couldn’t resist adding a dash of turmeric.

    Directions

    1. Add olive oil to a large stockpot and heat to medium. Add onion, garlic, shallot, carrots, and greens stems, and sauté until softened, about 7 to 8 minutes. Add cumin, coriander, turmeric, salt, and pepper and sauté for another minute or two. Add lentils and diced tomatoes and stir to combine. Add 4 cups of stock, grated ginger, harissa, and the bay leaf and simmer over medium-low heat for about 30 minutes, until lentils are tender. Add additional stock to achieve a thinner consistency if you prefer. Add torn greens to the stew and cook an additional 3 to 4 minutes, until greens have wilted. Remove bay leaf before serving. Taste and season to your liking.
    2. Serve stew by itself or over a warm bowl of grains. Add a dollop of Greek yogurt or a sprinkle of fresh chopped parsley if you like.
