The weather is getting colder, even here in sunny San Diego. I crave warm foods, and I have even ditched my morning smoothie obsession since the weather has gotten below 70 (because we all know 65 is borderline freezing!). So when I got the chance to review the new book by Angela Liddon, Oh She Glows Every Day, my eyes (and stomach) landed directly on her Golden French Lentil Stew. This rich and creamy vegan lentil stew will warm you from the inside out, it’s full of healthy ingredients and anti-inflammatory benefits, a perfect cozy meal!
This book is incredible. The recipes inside will literally make your stomach growl as you peruse the pages. Looking through each section, I couldn’t decide which recipe to review! I kept putting stickies on my favorites, but when I ran out of stickies, I decided perhaps it was time to narrow it down. Because it happened to be a blustery day, the vegan lentil stew is what I went with. But really, SO many amazing options!
Top 4 recipes to make after I devour vegan lentil stew:
- High Rise Pumpkin Cupcakes with Spiced Buttercream Frosting
- Sun-Dried Tomato and Garlic Super-Seed Crackers
- Creamy Thai Carrot Sweet Potato Soup with Roasted Tamari Almonds
- Strawberry Oat Crumble Bars, with Strawberry-Vanilla Chia Seed Jam
Angela makes her recipes seem so simple. Perhaps it has to do with the very clean and crisp look the photographs in the book convey (my favorite types of photos), or the easy to follow directions. But either way, this vegan lentil stew came together SO easily! I literally had three tired, cranky, hungry kids at my feet as I prepped and cooked, but I was still able to do it all in record time.
And SUPER great news, the publisher is letting me give away a copy to one of you awesome readers! Woohoo! Just scroll down to see how to enter. And make this vegan lentil stew. It’s amazing! Just look at that mouthwatering spoonful…
