Though my husband is happy to eat just about anything I cook and has fully embraced all of the Puerto Rican food I grew up eating, he does occasionally mention that he misses dishes from his own childhood. There are a few specific dishes he loves and rarely gets to eat, mostly because I have no idea how to cook them. I’ve been able to learn one Trinidadian dish so far – he is quite happy with the macaroni pie I make, but there are others I still wish to learn how to make.
With it still being winter and us actually having cooler days here in Florida, I decided to try making Trinidadian stewed lentils, one of my husband’s most favorite dishes. Though it’s not quite a soup, these stewed lentils are hearty and comforting, which evokes all the feelings of cool, winter days for me. Take a look at this wonderful recipe for Trinidadian style stewed lentils that are sure to hit the spot! The recipe consists of a few, simple ingredients, all of which you can find at your local Walmart!
