Try this healthy lentil stew

Eating healthy does not mean that we have to deprive ourselves of a lentil stew in the middle of winter. We leave the recipe for you to prepare a healthy version.


When it starts to get cold, Argentines have a fixed idea: stew. Stew whatever, but mostly lentil stew. A warm and well-caloric meal is an immense happiness on a day ofwinter. Just feeling its scent makes us burst with emotion.

However, today that we have a little more awareness about the importance of healthy eating, the idea of a stew with bacon, and Red chorizo, pork leather and other issues can be contradictory. Or, at least, reserved for special occasions only. If you think that, don't despair! There are variants of traditional lentil stew that leave aside the most controversial ingredients without losing the taste of a good stew and the comforting feeling that remains after eating it. There are even vegetarian versions.

So, if you're a lentil stew fundamentalist, this is not your recipe. We'll leave you the traditional one around here. But, if you want to eat healthy and not give up cooking high stew, I kept reading. You won't regret it.
