Vegan Dutch Oven Stew Recipe with Wine, Barley and Lentils

Serves 4

250g Yellow Split lentils (rinsed)
250g Pearl Barley (rinsed)
250ml Rose Wine
4 carrots sliced
6 sticks of celery sliced
1 Sweet Potato in small chunks
1 Courgette sliced
250g frozen peas
1.5 litres vegetable stock
1 sachet Bouquet Garni
Fresh Thyme and Oregano
Pepper to taste

We had a friend over for lunch today and seeing as the sun was shining, decided to cook outside in the Dutch Oven.  Our stews are pretty hit or miss but in my humble opinion this one was particularly good and worth writing down for future reference. It had just the right mix of textures from the Pearl Barley and Lentils with a bit of sweetness from the wine.

There isn't much instruction needed - just put it all in the pot, mix it up and stick it on the fire for about an hour.  We baked potatoes around the outside of the pot whilst it was cooking and served it with homemade bread.
