Ham and Lentil Stew

This stew can also be cooked on the stovetop by combining the ingredient as described below and simmering for 1 hour. For the best flavor infusion, though, use your trusty slow cooker!
  • 2 medium baking potatoes, washed & diced
  • 2 carrots, washed & sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced into thin wedges
  • 3-4 c. cooked green lentils
  • 1 (14 oz.) can diced tomatoes
  • 3 c. chicken broth
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 2 c. cubed ham

Layer the potatoes, carrots, onions, lentils and tomatoes in a slow cooker. In a bowl, combine the chicken broth, garlic, bay leaves, salt, pepper and paprika. Pour the mixture over the vegetables and cook on LOW for 6 hours.

In the last hour of cooking, add the ham, mix the stew and set the slow cooker on HIGH. Serve hot with crusty bread.
