Steps

1
Done

Soak & cook Lentils

Soaked 1 cup of lentils overnight in 2 cups of water. The next morning, lentils should almost double in size. Now use either an instant pot / crock pot or stove method to cook lentils.

In an instant pot, add the lentils with 2 cups of water, 1 tsp of salt, and pressure cook on high for 8 mins.

In a crock pot, cook similarly on high for 4-5 hours.

On the stove use a heavy bottom pan. Add soaked lentils with salt and 2 cups of water, cover halfway with lid and cook on medium heat for 20-25 mins or until lentils are soft. Test by squeezing a small amount between fingertips - they should easily get soft.

In a pan, heat the coconut oil. Add garlic, cook slightly, add onions, and cook until translucent. At this point, add cilantro and mix it well with the onion, cook for 1 minute. Now add carrots, sweet potatoes, and celery. Cook until soft.

Check thickness

If the stew is watery, mash the sweet potatoes in it, they will help to thicken the stew. Turn off the heat and serve hot.
