This yummy stew is a great alternative to beef stew and packs a lot of fiber.
In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook onion, garlic, and bell pepper, stirring frequently, until vegetables are tender.
Stir in water, lentils, tomato sauce and spices. Reduce heat to low and partially cover and simmer 35 to 40 minutes or until lentils are tender. Serve.
