  • 1 onion (large, finely chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (or perhaps a little more, depending on your pan)

  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 3/4 cup celery (finely diced)
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenn ground pepper (I only used 1/4 tsp. because I'm a wimp for hot foods)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin (original recipe said 1/2 tsp., but I love cumin)
  • 6 cups chicken (beef, or vegetable stock, I used 4 cups chicken and 2 cups beef stock, because that's what I had. You could also use canned broth)
  • 1 1/2 cups red lentils
  • 15 ounces chickpeas (rinsed until no more foam appears)
  • 1 can (14.5 oz.) diced tomatoes (I used petite dice, do not drain tomatoes)

    Loved this! Felt very smug when my husband was shocked that it was vegetarian!

    Absolutely delicious and very flavourful. After I cooked it for 1 hour on low heat it wasn’t as thick as a stew, so I had to increase the heat and cook it for 25 minuets more. Next time I will put it on medium heat or decrease the amount of water. Had it with rice.
