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.

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:
  • fresh pumpkin (or butternut squash)
  • green lentils
  • onion
  • vegetable broth
  • tomato paste
  • lime juice
  • cumin
  • ginger
  • turmeric
  • nutmeg
  • salt & pepper
  • Greek Yogurt and chopped cilantro for serving
