One Pot Smoky Lentil Stew

Posted on

Between the lentils and the sweet potatoes, this hearty stew sticks to your ribs and keeps you full for a looonngg time. It’s always frustrating when you eat a big lunch or dinner and then are already feeling munchy within a few hours. I like meals that really last and keep me full until the next meal. Because I will go to TOWN on some snacks otherwise.
