Lentil-Edamame Stew

Michael pulled this vegan recipe out of the recipe binder while we were meal planning for the week & made it tonight. He commented that it could use a little more cumin, it's easier to microwave the edamame in a little water & he used about two fresh lemons. It turned out great!

  • 1 cup dried lentils
  • 3/4 cup frozen shelled edamame (green soybeans)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups minced red onion
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon  ground cumin
  • 1/8  teaspoon  ground red pepper
  • 1/8  teaspoon  ground cinnamon
  • Dash of ground cloves
  1. Place lentils in a large saucepan; cover with water to 2 inches above lentils. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until tender. Drain well, and set aside.
  2. Place edamame in a small saucepan; cover with water to 2 inches above edamame. Bring to a boil; cook 2 minutes or until edamame are tender. Remove from heat; drain well.
  3. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, and tomatoes to pan; sauté 6 minutes or until onion is translucent, stirring often. Stir in lentils, edamame, juice, and remaining ingredients. Cook 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring often.

4 servings (serving size: about 1 cup)
