Lasagne Stew – Λαζάνια σε μπολ

There is nothing better than comfort food. For me Lasagne was always comfort food. My mom makes the BEST lasagne and I used her recipe  for years! That was before I became plant-based vegan. Of course there is nothing stopping me from having lasagne now…it’s just a matter of replacing certain ingredients. We have 2 different Lasagne recipes on the blog in fact. (For Steph’s delicious Two Tone Lasagne click here. And for a Moussaka Lasagne click here.) There are times however where you want the lasagne but you also don’t want to faff about making all the separate elements and then layering it up and sticking it in the oven. Save that for a dinner party! This is for those of you who just wanna add a load of stuff in a pot and then sit back and wait for it to cook into something delicious! This Lasagne Stew is a one pot dish! That’s right…just one pot!

As it is still pretty chilly in the evenings here, this is the kind of dish that will warm you up and it’s full of healthy plant-based, cruelty-free ingredients. Red Lentils and chopped up veggies have been added to make this thick and chunky. The night i was making this for dinner Rami, my husband, commented that the house smelt like pizza when he walked in from work. In my mind that’s a compliment.

Let’s talk nutrients and the health benefits of lentils… Firstly lentils are a great source of protein. They lower cholesterol and are great for the heart and digestive system. They are also a good source of fibre and we know how important fibre is.  Fibre can help prevent heart disease, diabetes, weight gain and some cancers, and can also improve digestive health. Plus most people (ahem…omnivores) don’t get enough fibre. So cook up a batch of this and enjoy some plant-based love.
