This fragrant, spiced vegetable stew combines lentils, carrots, and cauliflower in a savory broth seasoned with cumin, coriander, turmeric and cinnamon. The stew makes a nutritious meal as is, but if you want to make it heartier, try adding sautéed ground lamb or sautéed diced tofu. To brighten favors and add contrast, try serving with a spoonful of Greek yogurt and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
