Lemony Lentil Kabocha Squash Stew is a cozy winter recipe for any time of the day. It’s very easy and quick to whip up, all you need is a few ingredients to get started. The main powerhouses in this recipe will be the lemon, and spices to make this dish come together. With life being busy there is nothing like having a quick and easy recipe to have in your tool belt.

The big trick for this recipe is to either soak your lentils overnight in filtered water and kombu or buy already sprouted lentils. Which is what I did for this recipe. Therefore the whole meal only took 20 minutes in total.

Benefits of Kabocha Squash:

One cup of Kabocha contains forty calories — twenty calories less than butternut squash.

Kabocha is high in the antioxidant beta-carotene, which is also known as vitamin A. Vitamin A is essential for healthy white blood cells, good immunity, and healthy eyes, skin, and hair. One serving of kabocha squash provides you with 70 percent of your daily vitamin A requirement.

The skin of a kabocha squash is rich in fiber (and you can safely consume the peel), and also a good source of iron, vitamin C, and some B vitamins. Benefits sourced directly from

Sprouted Legumes Benefits:

Beans are also excellent sources of dietary fiber, particularly soluble fiber. This is the type of fiber that’s responsible for providing a greater feeling of satiety because it slows down the transition of food through the stomach and intestines. It also delays the absorption of glucose, which mitigates sudden changes in blood sugar levels, and lowers cholesterol especially low-density lipoprotein (LDL). Benefits sourced directly from

Lemon Lentil Kabocha Squash Stew variations:
