Heart Healthy Lentil Stew

A simple meal that will keep you going day and night is lentil stew.

It’s very simple to make, and you can freeze the leftovers and have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Here’s how I make it.

2 cups of lentils,

1 cup of rice,

6 cloves of garlic,

4 small red potatoes,

One large onion,

1 head chopped broccoli,

2 teaspoons of salt,

10 cups of water.

In a large pot bring all of the above ingredients to a boil, turn to low and let simmer for an hour and a half. Stir occasionally to mix everything up so it cooks evenly.

Scoop the stew into small plastic containers and you’ve got enough meals to last you at least a week.

I have read that lentils are high in protein, a very excellent source of cholesterol-lowering fiber, are of special benefit in managing blood-sugar disorders, and help prevent heart disease and constipation, but that people who are prone to kidney stones may want to avoid them.

Lentil stew is always there when you need it. Simply take it out of the freezer, defrost a container of it in your microwave for about fifteen minutes and you have a heart healthy nutritious meal.

Shredding a small sharp cheddar cheese over the top of it heightens the experience.

I can attest to the blood sugar phenomena. Since I’ve been eating my lentil stew my moods seem to have evened out a bit. I’m not quite as jagged.

I find that it goes especially well with a piece of Paul Newman’s sweet dark chocolate, and a cup of strong homemade black coffee, or a glass of cold milk.

I estimate the cost of each serving of this stew at about twenty five cents (depending on the size of the serving).
