Super Easy Lentil and Vegetable Stew

Ingredients

1 large onion, chopped

4 cloves garlic cloves, minced

2 12-ounce packages frozen vegetables* (or 2 pounds fresh vegetables cut in bit-sized pieces)

1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes, preferably fire-roasted

1 1/2 cups green lentils, cooked

4 cups vegetable broth or “no-chicken” broth

1 1/4 teaspoon oregano

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

2/3 cup pumpkin (canned)

salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Prepare Lentils as directed on package. Volume of lentils should triple, so start with ½ cup dry to yield 1 ½ cups prepared.  Cook the onion in a large, non-stick Dutch oven until it begins to brown. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for another minute. Add next 6 ingredients and the cooked lentils and heat until vegetables soften and broth begins to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 7-10 minutes.  Add pumpkin and salt and pepper to taste and cook for 5 more minutes, adding a little water if it seems too thick. Serve hot, garnished with parsley, if desired.
