Happy New Year! I know it is almost February, but it’s still a new year! I have some important and fun things to pass along to you Little Green Friends.
First of all, I’m launching a new program for the month of February called The February Cure. The February Cure is about setting fresh intentions for yourself so that you can feel healthy, vibrant, and empowered all year long. If you haven’t signed up yet, it’s not too late. Just click here to join in this month-long endeavor, where you’ll get tips and inspiration every weekday during the month of February, plus free membership to the Member’s section of the Little Green site, giving you access to hundreds of anti-inflammatory recipes, a meal planner, and grocery list generator! Normally this is paid-only content, but I want to share it with February Cure participants gratis to thank you for your support and to inspire you for 2019.
Secondly, I wanted to share with all of you a delicious, warm, cozy, plant-forward recipe that was one of our featured dishes for our January Cleanse. You’ll all love it.
Mountain Lentil Stew
- 8 carrots cut into large chunks
- 15 potatoes small, cut into chunks
- 4 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- sea salt
- 2 shallots
- 3 stalks celery
- 1 cup small french lentils
- 1 cup green lentils
- 5 cups water
- 2 Rapunzel bouillon cubes
- 2 leaves Kale cut into 1” slivers
- 1 can crushed tomatoes 28 oz
- fresh thyme
- Herbs de Provence
- fresh rosemary
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cut carrots and potatoes, drizzle with 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil and salt, and roast for 20-25 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large soup pot, sauté the shallots and celery pieces in 2 Tbsp. olive oil until just tender. Add the lentils and stir well. Add the water and Rapunzel bouillon cubes and stir well. Bring to a boil, then lower to a simmer and cover, stirring occasionally, cooking for about 25 minutes.
Once done, add the roasted vegetables, the kale, and the herbs. Stir well and taste for seasoning. Kale should wilt immediately and then stew is ready!
