Easy lentil stew


Ingredients: 4 people

  • 200 g green or red lentils
  • 8 carrots
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil or coconut oil
  • 1 medium onion
  • 140 g tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric
  • Salt & pepper
  • Mixed of dried herbs
  • 4 tablespoons of greek yogurt
  • Fresh coriander
  • Dukkah – optional


  1. Soak the lentils in water the day before if needed. I personally used green lentils (it’s quicker to cook) but of course you can also use red lentils.
  2. Peel and slice the onion.
  3. Fry the onion in a large stew pan with a bit of oil for few minutes, until it becomes golden and soft.
  4. Wash, peel and cut the carrots in slices, add them to the pan for few minutes.
  5. Cover with water and let cook for 15 min. Not too much water just enough to almost cover them.
  6. Add the lentils, tomato paste, salt, pepper, turmeric, mixed herbs.
  7. Let cook 15 min. Or more according to the lentils you are using.
  8. Serve with a spoon of greek yogurt on top, sprinkle some Dukkah and some fresh coriander.
  9. Enjoy!
