Norwegian Lentil Stew
My aunt from Norway has this wonderful lentil stew that is a staple in her home. She often makes it when she returns home from work tired and hungry. And this week she has promised to show us how to make this easy, healthy, and flavorful dish. It is absolutely delicious.
1 cup lentils
34 oz. of water (1 liter)
1/2 teaspoon salt
2-3 carrots, sliced
4 potatoes, diced
1 large onion
1/2 cup leek, sliced
2 1/2 tablespoons Better-Than-Bouillon
In a saucepan add water and salt. Bring to a boil. Wash lentils, add to pot.
Reduce heat, let simmer for 35 min. with the lid on. Add the rest of the ingredients.
Let simmer for another 25 min. with the lid on.
Serve with caramelized onions, cranberry sauce, and flat bread as the Norwegians do, or eat it as is.
