Lentil Chickpea Stew VIDEO

Check out how to make this Easy Lentil Chickpea Stew Recipe. You won’t regret it!

What I love the most about this recipe is just how dang easy it is! I’m telling you, anything that’s basically like “Throw It All in the Pot and Let It Cook” is made for me. :)

And I know it’s made for you and your busy schedule as well.

I originally saw this recipe on the Dr. Fuhman Forum for members and I adapted it to be a lot simpler and flavorful. Try serving this stew over a bed of wild rice, or alongside a huge salad, to make it a full Nutritarian meal.

Totally Customizable Lentil Chickpea Stew

Another thing I love about recipes that are so easy like this, is that they are also super customizable.

You can add or subtract any veggie or Nutritarian ingredient that you like. And if you aren’t following the Nutritarian plan very strictly, feel free to add salt, or season salt, or even a little meat like shredded chicken.

And as always, feel free to try out just doubling the spices first before you add extras. Then if you really need to, add whatever else you’d like.

Make It How You Like It

The sky is the limit with any recipe I post; feel free to customize anything to your individual taste preferences. The great thing is, I will always be giving the healthiest version of any recipe, and from there you can take it wherever you’d like.

No oil, salt, sugar, no meat, no dairy, no gluten (for the most part)…just super healthy Nutritarian foods that you can make your own! :-)
