Vegan lentil and veg stew

I’ve been struggling this week: I started my new job and got a cold. I guess I was bound to get sick after mixing with hundreds of students for the first time, especially in flu season when I often get cold after cold. I decided to make a yummy, warming stew jam packed with veggies and nutrients, and if your feeling anything like I did give this recipe a try – it made me feel tons better!
