We modified Ina Garten's Lentil and Tomato stew (https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/member/views/ina-gartens-stewed-lentils-and-tomatoes-52414711). We used fresh plum tomatoes and added celery, cauliflower, and spinach. Double the recipe for 24 students. We started heating the vegetable broth in two crockpots at 8:30 am while the students were busy with the Seesaw activity. After the students arranged the ingredients to make a "lentil stew plant", they were assigned to four stations for chopping the vegetable. The ingredients were divided equally and added to the broth in the two crockpots. The stew was ready to eat by lunch time.
