Sweet Potato Lentil Stew in Crock Pot

. at . 1 comment

I’m not much of a soup or stew maker, but last week I made a stew that was tasty, easy and a decent price. This Sweet Potato Lentil Stew has 10 ingredients and 3 of those are spices.

Throw it in the crock-pot in the morning and you’ll have a comforting meal to greet you at the end of your day. If you’d like to add meat, a chicken-apple sausage would be a nice addition. If you have a little more energy, make a batch of herbed drop biscuits and a garden salad.


  1. 4 cups  vegetable (or chicken) broth
  2. 3 cups (about 1.25 lbs) sweet potatoes: cubed
  3. 1 cup lentils: rinsed
  4. 3 carrots: medium-size, cut into 1 inch chunks
  5. 1 onion: medium-size, chopped
  6. 5 garlic cloves: minced
  7. 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  8. 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  9. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  10. 1/4 cup fresh cilantro or parsley


  1. Combine first 8 ingredients (through the ginger) in slow cooker.
  2. Cook on low 5-6 hours, until vegetables are tender.
  3. Stir in salt and cilantro (or parsley) before serving.
