Now that I’ve got more energy I’m enjoying making soups and stews for my lunches. Normally I make a big potful and freeze it in individual portions.

I made this simple stew in my slow cooker the other day, it tasted great so I thought I would share it with you.

  • 300g dried lentils, washed
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 400 g tinned tomatoes
  • 1-2 red peppers, diced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 600 ml  chicken stock
  • 3 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Put all the ingredients, except the olive oil, in the slow cooker.  Cook on low for approximately 8 hours, until the lentils and vegetables are tender.  Stir in the olive oil just before serving.

I served this with some salad leaves and home made dressing.
