Sweet Potato Lentil Stew
This is another of my favourite recipes from Alicia Silverstone's The Kind Diet - in fact, this is probably my most favourite recipe of all from the book (I previously blogged my adapted version of her amazing cupcakes). It's also one of those dishes that will never look pretty, no matter how you try to photograph it - but as all of us in the food blogosphere know, it's often the things that look the worst that taste the best! This is certainly true for this dish. What's even better is how good this is for you. The spices that are included in this dish are all so beneficial for you and there are so many thrown in, so it they make for a wonderful flavour.
Leek, Spinach, Lentil and Potato Pie
Who said pie has to always be sweet? No, I know, most of you like sweet pie. Hey, I like sweet pie (see the end of this post for more on that)! But I also love my veggies. This recipe PACKS in the veggies. Big time packs them in. That's why it has to have such a long name - because it just can't decide which veggie to promote the most (I know, lentils are technically pulses, but...potato potahto...)
