A few years ago a reader named Paula sent me this recipe for Spicy Red Lentil and Chickpea Stew, and since then I've made it over and over for parties, wedding showers, and just to have in the fridge for week-night dinners. Paula called this Moroccan Lentil Stew, and I'm not sure if the flavors here are really authentically Moroccan but the combination of spices in this dish is perfect. It's also easy to make vegan if you use vegetable stock and substitute for the sour cream.
