Holly White’s Miso Lentil Stew

Check out this delish Miso Lentil Stew – that Holly White whipped up for us at Thrive Festival!   Holly says: This is a really tasty filling main course. Apart from some initial chopping it’s quite low maintenance on the prep front and very easy. The Miso is key in bringing the flavours together and giving this a satisfying richness so it’s well worth the trip to a health food store or Asia market to get it. This is lovely cold as a leftover so it makes a perfect on-the-go lunch as well. The only thing to be specific about it don’t use red lentils as they will go mushy.
