Slow cooker Moroccan lentil stew, from Taste and Tell

Moroccan lentil stew, vegan and gluten-free, from Taste and Tell (on Soup Chick).

I love cooking lentils in the slow cooker. You can let them go until they absolutely fall apart, or stop the cooking when the lentils are soft but still holding together. This Moroccan lentil stew, from Taste and Tell, cooks lentils, potatoes and butternut squash at the same time, allowing them to meld into a uniformly creamy stew, and adds green beans at the end to keep the beans just a bit crunchy. The seasoning comes from curry powder, which I don't usually think of as particularly Moroccan; you could substitute a Syrian or Arabic spice blend for a nice effect.

This sounds good. Never thought of using green beans in a stew like this.

thanks so much for featuring this soup - it's been so long since I had it and I forgot all about it! Looks like I need to break out the slow cooker this week.

Kalyn, don't the green beans sound like a great idea?

Deborah, my pleasure.

SKM, yay! I'm so glad you liked it.
