Heat oil in a medium sized pot and brown the onion. Add garlic, green pepper and tomato. Allow to cook until everything is very soft. Add a splash of water if necessary.

Add paprika and bay leaf and cook for two minutes while stirring. Add water, carrots, potato and lentils. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low.

Simmer for 30 mins or until the lentils are soft and creamy.

When the lentils are ready, add the soy sauce, salt and pepper to taste.


Tip: This stew can be served thick or thin. Add more water if you want it to be more like soup. You can also thicken it with a couple of blitzes with a hand-held blender.
