Green Lentils stew is similar to my Beans stew recipe. This stew is mainly made with green lentils, some mixed vegetables have been added to it, but this is optional. The stew is seasoned with some of my favourites ingredients: white pepper of Penja, spring onions, garlic, ginger, country onions, African nutmeg and fruit 4 sides.
