Brown Lentil Stew With Corn and Green Peas

Total: 30 minutes
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 25 minutes

This lentil stew recipe is just about throwing a few ingredients into pot, adding water, grating a carrot while the stew is cooking and mixing it in at the end with some coconut milk. It doesn’t get any easier.



  1. Soak lentils for 6-8 hours. Then drain and rinse.
  2. Throw onion and garlic flakes, vegetable broth powder, curry powder, peas and corn, and lentils into a pot.
  3. Add enough water to barely cover the ingredients and mix well. Bring to boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes. It’s ready when the lentils are done.
  4. While the stew is cooking, grate 2 carrots and put aside.
  5. When the stew is done, add coconut milk and grated carrot and mix well.
  6. Let the stew cool a bit and then add the turmeric and black pepper.


  • To shorten the cooling process, divide the stew between plates and add turmeric and black pepper to individual portions.
  • Garnish with coriander, parsley, thyme or sage.
  • Add nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor
