Lentils with mushrooms

At home no one can resist a mess of pottage. We consume them weekly and, almost always in the form of a stew, like the one I show you today. This time we have made them with vegetables, giving prominence to the mushrooms.

They therefore do not have meat or sausage but I assure you that this way, with the ingredients that I indicate below, they are delicious. They are more light and perfect for those who want to follow a Healthy diet.
