Lentil-Sausage Stew With Sweet Potato “Croutons”
In This Article

Lighten up with a quick turkey sausage cooked with hearty lentils and tomatoes. This stew “sticks to your ribs” without sticking to your waistline, and it delivers a nice protein boost to your day. Instead of croutons, roast sweet potato cubes while it cooks, for a more nutritious topper.

This one’s a great meal prep option for the week. It’s hearty enough to have for lunch and keep you full throughout the day. You can also boost the nutrition benefit by adding vegetables to the stew like carrots, celery, leafy greens or squash.
