Curried Lentil and Potato Stew

Curried Lentil & Potato Stew- Vegan & Gluten Free

Curried Lentil & Potato Stew. Yes, stew. With readers checking in from around the globe, it must be kind of funny for those basking in sunshine to see a recipe for soup. Not to keep complaining about it (even if I admittedly don’t shy away from a bit o’ complaining), but spring in the Toronto area has definitely not sprung.

It’s still stew weather and I need comforting.

We’ve been looking to up our game when it comes to more vegetarian dinners and I like how hearty this Curried Lentil & Potato Stew is as a meal. You could add chicken to it if you wanted too, but it definitely isn’t a stew that needs it.

I know a lot of people poo-poo white potatoes, but they are a whole food and can totally been enjoyed as part of a healthy diet. Sweet potatoes are superior when it comes to nutritional stats, but white potatoes add a creaminess to this stew that you just wouldn’t get from the sweet variety. I choose organic when it comes to white potatoes. No GMO’s for us, thanks. Can we label that sh$t, by the way? Geez.

These spices: curry, cumin, coriander, turmeric, etc. I always have on hand. Building up my spice repertoire was something I learned early on when it came to healthier cooking. Nutritious food does not mean boring or bland. Spices are something that bring your meals to life.

My taste buds were shot from the processed food I ate and absolutely from the smoking. Now, I can’t get enough spice and generally add more heat to recipes that most cooks I know.

Luckily, the mister also likes it fiery so we make a good pair when it comes to that. 🙂 I never worry about adding too much.

I hope it’s lovely and warm were you are. If not, try this Curried Lentil & Potato Stew on for size. It’s like a warm, little throw to keep you toasty until summer. If it ever arrives. 😉
