    Directions:
    Place the dry lentils in a bowl and cover with water; let sit while you prep and start to cook the vegetables.

    Clean and peel the carrot, and slice.

    Dice the celery into bite-sized chunks.

    Dice the onion into bite-sized chunks. 

    Peel and cut the potato into bite-size chunks. 

    Pour the can of tomatoes with juice into a bowl.

    Coarsely chop tomatoes in the bowl.

    Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Once the oil shimmers, stir in the zucchini, if using, the celery, carrot, onion and potato. 

    Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onion is soft. 

    Drain the lentils, then add to the pot, along with the ground spices. 

    Pour in the tomatoes and juice, and the 2½ cups of water, along with 1 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. 

    Bring the mixture to a boil, cover and cook for 5 minutes.

    While the stew cooks, finely chop the parsley leaves. Cut the lime into wedges.

    Lower the heat to medium-low, cook for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring a few times, until all the vegetables are tender, but firm. 

    Taste, and add salt and pepper, as desired.

    Spoon into bowls, garnish with parsley and serve hot, with lime wedges.

    In my house, fall and winter cooking means lots of stews, soups and casseroles. Beef stew is one of my true favorites, and one that I can almost never order at a restaurant, because it almost always contains wheat, either as a thickener, or to dredge the meat for browning.
