Butternut Squash Chickpea Lentils

Butternut Squash Chickpea Lentils

Talk about a comforting meal …

These butternut squash chickpea lentils are the best hearty warm meal! This one-pot dish is soo flavorful & deeeelish. I love eating it plain, or with some rice / bread on the side. Yuuuum.

The ingredients listed will make the lentils so that there’s a bit of broth leftover, making it like a super thick soup. If you want it more soupy, add more broth… or if you want it less soupy, then only add 4 cups!

This recipe makes a HUGE batch, so I’m packing this for lunch all week.
