  7. Beautiful shot! your spinach is holding up nicely. Mine tends to disintegrate in hot dishes pretty early on.

    This is a very delicious combination. Yum!

  13. Did you hack into my brain and found out I was searching for lentil recipes? 😉 This sounds great!

  14. I should definitely try this with the pom juice. I made it substituting 1/4 cup pom molasses and it was too tart, even for me. I eventually warmed up to it, but I’d love to try it again with the juice. Sounds like a winning soup. 🙂

    I hope all’s well,

  21. I love lentil soup. It just always makes everything ok!

  22. Well I can’t say I keep pomegranate juice in my fridge…but I may have to go out and buy some for this! Sounds delicious.

  23. Candace says:

    I still haven’t tried lentils and I have some in the cupboard. Thank you for the reminder! This looks like a good reason to try them.

  24. Carolyn Jung says:

    Earthy with the sweet. Interesting combo of flavors. That bowl looks hearty and wonderful.

  25. Christy says:

    Oooh, I love lentils and I’ve just recently had them on a flight, surprisingly:p
    I wished I could stock up on pomegranate juice in my fridge as well, but I can’t find any good one around here, or maybe I have been too picky?:)

  26. That stew sounds wonderful, love the combination of savory, tart, and sweet flavors, off to check out the recipe!

  29. beti says:

    this is by far one of the most interesting combination ever my sister loves lentils and I will tell her about this recipe definetly bokmarking it

  30. Heck yes for macaron dates! I am super jealous… and kind of thankful, because I’d be a hundred pounds heavier and have much less money at my disposal if I lived any closer to Laduree than I do now!

    This stew looks awesome! Lentil and barley and spinach and golden raisins and pomegranate molasses… Such a great combination of peculiar flavors. Love your bowl, too 🙂

  31. Christine says:

    Swear there really is a universal consciousness because like a number of other people, I’ve had lentils on the brain. Love the idea of barley in this too, yum! Funny, I’ll bet the pomegranate taste changes when added to the savory ingredients sort of like cinnamon in Danish Kale soup and is totally surprising. This goes on the must make list for sure!

  32. Wow this rocks Joanne…
    I an see my self in that bowl… LOL
    Heading over to check recipe…

  33. That Girl says:

    I don’t have pomegranate juice, but I do have a pomegranate so old I’m a little afraid to slice it open…

  34. ANything lentil is always an instant crowd pleaser in your house. The pomegranate it such a nice change from the typical ingredients list.

  35. Shu Han says:

    Oh that’s great! I’m quite into lentils lately, having discovered bags of unused beans and such at the back of my kitchen cupboard a few days ago, so am trying to use them up! I don’t have pomegranate juice constantly in my fridge though, but I’ll find some!

  36. I see lentils popping up all over. This sounds like a great combination.

  37. Claudie says:

    You always make stews look delicious. And I bet it’d actually truly absolutely amazing. Bookmarking this as a must try!
