This spicy fall sausage lentil stew is a healthy dinner recipe that highlights fall flavors in a hearty comfort food meal.

There’s nothing like fall in New England. I love spending time outside with my family during this time of year, enjoying the cooler weather and beautiful foliage. And after a day of outdoor adventures, we all like coming home to a hearty meal for dinner.

The ingredients for this stew

This fall sausage lentil stew highlights some delicious fall flavors from my local Cost Plus World Market. Wandering through their grocery section is one of my regular “me-time” escapes when I find myself out shopping.

I’m lucky to live near the Framingham MA store, one of the bigger Cost Plus World Markets in New England. They tend to have lots of fun seasonal items throughout the year. (Find your local store here.)

Lots of different flavors and colors come together in this hearty fall sausage lentil stew.

This stew includes their autumn lentil mix, dried mushroom blend, extra virgin olive oil, and Pomi tomatoes.

The secret ingredient that brings the flavor to the next level is their chipotle barbecue spice blend. Even though barbecue season is behind us, this seasoning mix is the perfect sweet and spicy addition to a fall stew.

This autumn lentil blend from Cost Plus World Market adds a healthy base to this sausage stew.

Fresh vegetables from my farm share make this a healthy, one pot meal. If you don’t want it to be very spicy, use just one teaspoon of the chipotle blend, or substitute other seasonings according to your tastes. Either way, you’ll love this hearty, healthy dinner.

Vegetables from my farm share are the perfect addition to this fall sausage lentil stew.
