Spicy Lentil & Chickpea Stew Recipe

Publisher Photo
This recipe came to me from a friend and previous coworker at a health food store. I changed a few things until I found a version that my family loves. My 5-year-old son doesn't like things too spicy, so I make the stew milder for him and add a sprinkle of extra spice in mine. My husband, who farms, works outdoors for long hours at a time and finds this soup hearty enough to keep him satisfied.—Melanie MacFarlane, Bedeque, Prince Edward Island
