Lentil & Ginger stew

This was based on another yummy sounding recipe from liveinazoo on mumsnet.

I think this would serve 4, DD2 & I had some & there was plenty left to go into the freezer for another day.

Update: Made this again today for both DDs, but DD1 (3.8) refused to even try it.  DD2(14m) & I enjoyed it though!



  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 large carrots (roughly 250-300g), chopped
  • 150g red lentils
  • 250 ml low salt veg stock
  • 1 tin (400ml) coconut milk
  • 2 tsp easy ginger – I am experimenting with using this instead of fresh ginger – need to add more next time!
  • 100g frozen spinach
  • 1 tbsp flaked almonds
  • 2 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped
to serve
  • rice


  1. heat oil. add onion and carrots & cook for 5 mins to soften slightly over very low heat
  2. add ginger and lentils and stir for 2 mins.
  3. add stock and milk.boil then cover and simmer for 20 mins
  4. put the rice on
  5. blitz half the mixture & return to the pan (optional – i.e. I forgot to do this)
  6. add spinach & cook for about 5 mins until ready
  7. divide between 4 bowls and sprinkle with almonds and coriander.
  8. serve with the rice

  1. […] was Ginger & Lentil Stew, and for tea we had asparagus & frittata. Share this:TwitterFacebookPinterestMoreLike […]

  2. […] I thought it smelt & tasted delicious (it reminded me of this Lentil & Ginger stew), neither of the girls (4 & 1.8) were impressed, so I won’t be making it for them […]
