Warming turmeric lentil stew

The weather is trying to turn “fallish”, but it is California, so it’s taking a minute. Nonetheless, we have had a couple of chilly mornings and I’ve had a craving for a nice, warming stew full of hearty, healthy goodness. I’ve also been trying to incorporate more Turmeric into the family diet so we can all benefit from its superfood powers and so this stew was born!

I threw together the things I was craving and a good dose of Turmeric and oh, my friends did it deliver the warm, happy tummy feels I was looking for! It literally brought a heart-deep smile to my face and I spent the next few days eating it quite happily.

Get ready for a chilly night in and give this delicious, crockpot warming stew a try. Print
