Sweet Potato & Lentil Stew and Naptime Chef Cookbook Giveaway
I got my copy of The Naptime Chef Cookbook and it is filled with mouthwatering recipes. Seriously, I want to make everything! What’s so great about this cookbook is that you prep during nap and cook with the kids later. But we have to start somewhere so the kids and I chose the sweet potato and lentil stew because it’s cold outside. So enjoy this delicious recipe and if you like it as much as we do let us know in the comment section and see if you are randomly selected to win a free copy of The Naptime Chef Cookbook.
It’s just me and my little guy for the afternoon, and this recipe was perfect for us. I prepped during naptime and once lincoln woke up and was past the groggy stage he was eager to get to work in the kitchen. Normally I take one look at a recipe and end up changing a ton of ingredients, but I decided to stick with this one.
Boy am I glad I did, this stew is perfect as is. My husband could not stop talking about how delicious it is and Lincoln was spooning it in faster then he could eat. What a way to start with this new cookbook, the only thing is I want to keep making this stew every night! Get the recipe after the jump and don’t forget to comment for your chance to bring home all of the Naptime Chef’s recipes…
Sweet Potato & Lentil Stew
Naptime prep – 15 minutes
cook time – 50 minutes
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
1 garlic clove, minced
2 teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
32 oz low sodium chicken stock
2 large sweet potatoes, cut into 1 inch cubes
1 14oz can chopped tomatoes with juices
1 cup brown lentils
fresh ground pepper to taste
1. In a heavy stockpot or dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and gently sauté until tender, about 5 minutes.
2. Add the ginger, garlic, curry powder, and salt to the pan and stir until the mixture is fragrant, about 2 minutes.
3. Carefully pour in the chicken stock and ass the potatoes, tomatoes, and lentils. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring the stew to a boil. Allow to bowl for 1 minute, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer everything, stirring occasionally for about 40 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are tender enough to pierce with a fork. Before serving taste the soup and add an extra pinch of salt and pepper in necessary. Serve hot!

That stew looks delicious, and what a fun cookbook idea.
I’m going to go buy some sweet potatoes and make that tonight!
That looks so yummy! love new lentil recipes.
Looks delicious!! And I’m definitely interested in checking out the cookbook. Maybe it will help me get my picky 4.5 y.o. eating foods other than pizza/hot dogs/nuggets!
This looks great! I would sub veggie stock for chicken broth – but otherwise looks easy and delicous
That stew sounds great and the recipe looks simple!
What a great concept for a book. That recipe looks perfect for today’s blustery weather.

This looks like one that would be a hit in our house, for sure!
I’d have to eat it at naptime, too (no one else in my house will eat lentils or sweet potatoes!) but I think this sounds amazing!
This recipe is definitely on my short list! My son’s favorite food is sweet potatoes and I’m always trying to find ways to incorporate lentils into our diets.
I love sweet potatoes. This looks like the perfect dinner!

I love sweet potatoes, but have never had lentils. Looks very yummy! I would love to win, thanks for the chance.
I can’t wait for my boy to come home from grandmas to cook this. My boy has been showing a lot of interest in cooking lately by asking to help more and more.
I like lentils but I’m not really into sweet potatoes. But it looks great and your son seems to have fun in the kitchen
This recipe looks good and it is a plus that your kid likes it.
How many servings is this recipe?
Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy this recipe! Making a batch right now. Delicious!!!
Can’t wait to make this. I also can’t believe no one has commented on step 3 when it’s time to ass the potatoes! Thanks for the recipe.
I didn’t ass the potatoes, I only added them – but, it still turned out delicious!
