Winter Squash and Red Lentil Stew Recipe

  • 1 cup red lentils or yellow split peas
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 each mustard seeds, turmeric, ginger, and cumin (1/2 teaspoon each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
  • 4 cups peeled and diced winter squash (2 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
Place the lentils and 2 cups water in a pot and bring to a simmer. Cover loosely and cook until the lentils are tender, about 20 minutes. Braise the onion in 1/2 cup water until soft and translucent, then add the spices, the remaining 1-1/2 cups water, and the diced squash. Cover and cook over medium heat until the squash is tender when pierced with a fork, about 15 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice, cooked lentils, and salt to taste.
