This isn't a stew, but a soup... And a bland one at that. I'd bought green lentils on sale, and was looking for ways use the bag. The flavours sounded good, and the seasonings intrigued me. Perhaps it didn't turn out stew-ish because I used a different kind of lentil. I didn't find the soup sweet at all, actually maybe another spoon of maple syrup would have done it some good, and at least doubling the seasonings. Was eaten, but didn't entirely care for it. The bacon would do better used as a topping after cooking. I like the flavour ideas in this recipe, and may apply them to a recipe of my own creation.
