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!
Curried Lentil-Potato Stew
- 4 c. peeled diced potatoes
- 1/2 c. red lentils
- 2 small onions chopped
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 1 1/2 c. water
- 1 tsp. curry powder
- 2 tsp. salt
- 1 small green bell pepper diced
- 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh or frozen parsley
- 2 Tbsp. creamy old-fashioned peanut butter
- 1/2 tsp. paprika optional
Simmer potatoes, lentils, onion, garlic, water, curry, and salt without lid till potatoes are tender and water has evaporated, about 30 min. Stir a few times while cooking, and add more water if needed.
When potatoes are tender, add bell pepper, parsley, and peanut butter. Stir well to cream stew. Season with paprika if desired.
Serve warm. Good with bread.
