Slow Cooker Pumpkin Lentil Stew Recipe from LaaLoosh

This tasty-sounding Crock Pot Pumpkin Lentil Stew is vegetarian, or vegan if you leave off the yogurt.  (Photo from LaaLoosh.)

I think we've officially started the countdown to pumpkin day, and everywhere you look there are pumpkin breads, cookies, cakes, and even pumpkin ice cream.  Personally I am not really wowed by sweet pumpkin recipes, but give me a savory pumpkin dish like this Crock Pot Pumpkin Lentil Stew from LaaLoosh and I am definitely interested.  You can use butternut squash if you prefer, and I think this sounds like a perfect Meatless Monday idea for the slow cooker.

Ingredients for this recipe:
This recipe uses fresh pumpkin (or butternut squash), green lentils, onion, vegetable broth, tomato paste, lime juice, cumin, ginger, turmeric, nutmeg, salt & pepper, and Greek Yogurt and chopped cilantro for serving.
