Hey Folks. Today I’m bringing you one of my favourite lentil recipes Moroccan lentil stew.
Those of you who follow my blog regularly will be well aware of my obsession with Moroccan spices and lentils.
So how better to celebrate the two of my healthy obsessions than to put them both together in a delicious and filling one pot family meal?
Not only is this healthy stew made up of an amazing combination of lentil enthused spices but there’s chickpeas and sweet potatoes too.
You’ll get plenty of your daily recommended fibre from those chickpeas.
As well as a good dose of protein from those lentils!
Overall there are only 428 calories in this Moroccan lentil dish.
Plus the chunks of sweet potatoes are great source of vitamins B & C.
Those vitamins help and support a healthy immune system as well as the growth, development and repair of our bodies as well.
