Balsamic Lentil Stew.

It's stew season, so here is my favorite go-to stew recipe (inspired by my classmate T's recipe):  

Balsamic Lentil Stew 

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped

3 cloves garlic, minced
1 red pepper, chopped
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 carrots, chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped

1 cup red lentils
6 cups veggie broth or water

1 small bunch kale (about 2 full cups)
2-3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar (to taste)
1 teaspoon red chili flakes (or more if you want it spicy!)

Salt & pepper to taste

Bring big pot with water or broth to a boil and add the lentils. Saute veg in the oil for 5 minutes then add to the pot with lentils. Simmer on medium heat for 20-30 minutes or until lentils and sweet potatoes are soft. Then, add the kale, vinegar, and spices.  Let cook for 5 more minutes, then serve.
