The best healthy vegan lentil stew recipe! A satisfying, colorful, nutritional, easy-made, vegan, one-pot stew.

We all need a super healthy recipe, which we can go back to when feeling like we need to fill our bodies with the best ingredients to perform well and feel amazing. Especially during the Christmas time when the chances are high that we overeat sugar and foods that aren't nourishing our bodies well. The cold season also started, and that's when we can rely on nourishing and comfort foods that taste like a hug. This stew/soup is the perfect source for that.

ingredients for the best healthy vegan lentil stew recipe

  • Lentils.

     Brown lentils are my favorite for this stew recipe. They have an earthy flavor tone and are perfect for stews and soups. The highly nutritious edible seeds are a great source of protein, fiber, iron, Vitamins B, Zinc, and Potassium. Lentils have many health benefits, such as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. They may help lower the risk of heart disease and improve cholesterol and blood pressure level.
  • Potatoes.

     They are a great source of carbs. The starchy vegetable helps thicken the stew.
  • Carrots.

     The highly healthy orange vegetable is an excellent source of Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Potassium, Fiber, Vitamin C, Calcium, and iron. They are rich in antioxidants.
  • Celery.

     Not only will it add a lot of flavor to the soup, but it is also a healthy ingredient. Celery may support digestive function, be anti-inflammatory, may improve memory, and may improve blood sugar management.
  • Onion.

     One big yellow onion will add so much flavor.
  • Parsley.

    The green herb rounds the soup perfectly up.
  • Ginger.

     This is the key ingredient to make the stew extra healthy and give it a sweet, spicy touch.
  • Bay leaves.

  • Spices.

  • Apple cider vinegar.

     Just a little bit to make the soup a little bit sour.
