Thai Curry Lentil Stew with Bone Broth

Updated: Dec 11, 2022

Designed to keep you full and healthy for the colder months.

This is an easy to prepare dinner recipe that helps support your digestion and gut health, and is a fantastic choice for people with autoimmune disease or inflammatory disorders. This wholesome stew, packed with nutrient dense lentils that are rich in fiber, is easy to digest and leaves us feeling full and satisfied for longer. Best of all, it is gluten and dairy free, making it perfect for anyone steering clear of those ingredients. If you love the idea of zero waste or are interested in trying it, I incorporated an easy to implement idea that not only helps to reduce waste, but is also budget friendly. By eliminating waste in the kitchen, you will also be reducing CO2 emissions, and get all the satisfaction from contributing to sustainability and doing something to help our planet.

This stew is a great ‘go to’ meal when you are deciding what to do with the random vegetables sitting around in the fridge, and is a great way to use everything up before your next shopping trip. The versatility of this dish allows you to add the veggies of your liking as well. This is a warming dish, which means that the warming spices not only create an incredible burst of flavour, but brings some much needed literal and metaphorical warmth during the winter when you are craving comfort food. The spice combination of cinnamon, curry, ginger and thyme not only smell amazing, but also aid digestion and contain anti-inflammatory properties. You can make this stew the day before you plan to go shopping, and it’s a great way to clear your fridge of vegetables that have to be used up now.

Making chicken broth from scratch is easier than you think! By making it at home, you can add extra nutrients that will help to repair your digestion lining, all while supporting your immune system, joint and skin health. Bone broth is a true powerhouse, high in minerals like calcium, iron and magnesium, zinc, vitamin A and K, and high in collagen and glycine.

But of course, we all know that sometimes we simply don’t have time to make everything from scratch. This recipe is easy to modify, and you can swap out homemade chicken stock for store bought organic bone broth to save even more time in the kitchen. Another modification idea is using a slow cooker if you have one. You can throw in all the ingredients in the morning, set the timer, and after work you’ll come home to a hearty meal. You won’t be waiting for dinner, in fact, dinner will be waiting for you!

Zero waste idea: collect your scrap veggies and save them in a bag in the freezer to add to your broth. Keep in mind that it’s important to buy good quality organic bones, because bones can store chemicals and toxins.

It is a freezer friendly recipe so it will save you time in the future. This recipe is for two servings, however it is super easy to double or even triple the amount so that you have meals prepped ahead of time. Make a big batch and freeze it. For the occasion that you have company drop by unexpectedly, and don’t know what to cook, this is a sure-fire crowd pleaser that’s easy to prepare while entertaining guests. And on those busy days that are bound to pop up, just thaw it, warm it up, and enjoy.
