let's see if i can remember how i made it.

in a large pot bring to boil two cups of vegetable broth and four cups of water.  cover.

in saute pan heat about a cup total of onions, red and green peppers and parsley. 

dice a sweet potato and a regular potato (about a cup of each.)

after onion mixture starts heating up add a tablespoon of olive oil, then add the diced sweet potatoes to the saute pan.

when water comes to a boil add regular diced potatoes and a little salt to taste.  cover.

add lentils and split peas to saute pan, i'd say no more than a cup... closer to a half.  stir so nothing sticks.  when water and regular potatoes come back to a boil in the other pot add the mixture in the saute pan to them.  cover and simmer on low for 50 minutes.

after 50 minutes add in any seasoning you like.  i used salt and pepper, ancho chili pepper powder, minced garlic and a few other spices.  add in a half can of black eyed peas after rinsing them.  add a half box of frozen spinach or other favorite green.  bring to a boil then reduce the heat to low and simmer for another 10 minutes.  stir to break up the greens.

will be thick like stew.  yummy.  serve with a good hunk of bread.  i chose a rye.  also served some bread and butter pickles on the side.

(this is my regular lentil stew recipe, altered for new year's!)

happy new year stew!  happy new year to you!
