This hearty stew is chock-full of protein-packed lentils, vegetables and tasty turkey kielbasa. It's big on flavor but easy on the budget, assures Patti St. Antoine of Broomfield, Colorado.

"Because we try to stay away from most meat, I used only 1/2 pound of low fat turkey kielbasa and diced it into smaller pieces. We like the flavor that cumin gives to any recipe, so doubled the amount. The cayenne pepper gives it a little snap, we use more but even the 1/8 t. would be to hot for some."

"This stew was so good and so full of healthy goodness. It was also very easy to prepare but tasted like I had worked all day on it. The only small change I made was adding 1/2 teaspoon more salt at the end. I know I'll be making this often."
