Creative Vegan Cooking Guest Post – Curried Lentil-Potato Stew

Hi, I’m Maria from over at Creative Vegan Cooking, a blog dedicated to showing how delicious and fun healthy food can be! I would like to thank Vanessa for letting me guest post on her blog. Vegan Family Recipes is one of my favorite blogs – a down-to-earth and practical implementation of the vegan diet. I first discovered Vanessa’s blog because she started commenting on my posts, and when I clicked the link in the comment, I saw mutual ground and the potential for a blogging friendship. Now, we are chit-chatting back and forth, commenting on each others blog posts!

The recipe I would like to share with you today is a simple and practical example of how delicious a plant-based vegan diet can be – without the awkward substitution dilemmas. This lentil-potato stew is hearty and comforting with healthy carbs from the potatoes, nutritious protein from the lentils, crisp veggie greenness from the bell pepper, and natural fat from old-fashioned peanut butter!
