Mushroom Lentil Potato Stew

Disclaimer: This post has been sponsored by USA Pulses and Pulse Canada, but opinions are all my own.

Now that it’s officially Fall, I can share lots of soup and stew recipes.  Starting with this Mushroom Lentil Potato Stew!  This meal is so hearty and it will keep you full for quite some time.


The lentils make the soup by adding lots of protein and fiber!  Lentils, along with beans, dry peas and chickpeas, all fall under the category of pulses.

Did you know that 2016 is the International Year of the Pulses? In addition to this healthy soup recipe, I am here to tell you all about pulses.
