Lentil Stew (that my kids EAT!)

I don't know about you, but my kids are not always the best judge of food I serve. ha! BUT I was happy to see that ALMOST all of them ate this recipe up the other night!

Lentil Stew! I grew up with my mom serving it and I personally LOVE it, but for some odd (wink, wink) reason...my kids don't always agree with me. haha

It really IS good though! Here's the recipe for you to try it out at your house tonight!

6 cups water or veg bouillon
2 cups dried lentils
1 cup chopped onion
 1/2 lb sliced mushrooms
1 tsp basil
2 tsp salt
2 stalks celery
4 carrots diced
 1 can (16 oz) stewed tomatoes
1 clove garlic, chopped
4 large potatoes, sliced
2 Tbsp vinegar

Bring water to a boil in large heavy pot. Rinse lentils in cold water and drain. Slowly add lentils to boiling liquid, reduce heat and then simmer 1 hour. Add all remaining ingredients except vinegar. Cook at least 1 hour until lentils and potatoes are tender. Add the vinegar and simmer another 5 minutes.

(The picture isn't the best, bc I hadn't planned on posting it originally, so just took one with my iphone for Instagram, but I've had so many requests, here it is!)
Serve and enjoy!
