lentil soup in a grey bowl with slice of bread

Cozy, hearty, healthy, and flavorful vegan stew. Loaded with so much plant-based goodness, and all you have to is toss everything in a crockpot!

I am so excited to partner with Pomi to bring you this super cozy, nourishing, and easy-to-make lentil + sweet potato stew. I absolutely love the flavor the chopped tomatoes bring to this dish, with all the flavorful veggies and fiber-packed lentils.

I love a good crockpot recipe. once you have the veggies chopped, the crockpot just does the rest of the work for you! Bonus- your house will smell absolutely amazing while this is cooking!

The warming spices used in this dish make it the perfect comfort food for the colder months- I can’t get enough of soups and stews right now!
