This soup is the perfect meal when you want something nourishing and warm, or really just about any time. Scramble recipe tester Bobbi Woods said, “Oh my goodness this was fabulous! We all had seconds!!! The LIME absolutely made the taste POP.”
Do Ahead or Delegate: Dice the onion, peel and cut the ginger and the squash, peel the garlic, cut the lime, or fully prepare and refrigerate or freeze the stew.
Scramble Flavor Booster: Stir up to 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper into the stew after pureeing it, and top it with toasted coconut and/or toasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds).
Tip: Unlike many varieties of dried beans, lentils don’t need to be soaked. I suggest sorting through and rinsing them to clean away any dirt or debris, but since they cook fairly quickly, you can skip the soaking step (although soaking them will speed up the cooking a bit).
