Yummy Lentil Stew (Vegan)

Yummy Lentil Stew (Vegan)

For an enthusiastic foodie like me, vegans always seemed like strange, pale people who ate weird things. That was until I became one of these guys myself after watching "What the Health", "Food Choices" and other shocking health-related

Netflix documentaries. Doctors featured in these documentaries said that switching to a plant-based low-fat diet helps you to avoid cancer, and other common diseases. So little Miss Hypochondriac here turned vegan.

I have to admit, when I made the switch, I thought I'd have to chew on boring, weird food for the rest of my life. I mean let's be honest the word vegan sounds like a huge turn off. The same is true for the word low-fat.

The minute you hear these two words, especially when they are used in the same sentence, you're appetite flies out the window. The word plant-based doesn't seem to make things better, since you think of plain, boiled, boring vegetables that taste like nothing.

But I quickly learned, that I was wrong. Food doesn't have to include lots of fat and animal products to taste delicious. Spices, onions, and garlic are great ways to make your plant-based, low-fat food taste amazing.

Incorporating veggies into yummy stews, casseroles or satisfying  potato salads instead of eating them plain, and overboiled will also do the trick. I always combine my veggies with plenty of satisfying carbs like potatoes, whole wheat bread, noodles, or brown rice.

I know what you are thinking: "But carbs are so bad and unhealthy". No they're not. Combined with veggies they are super healthy, and most of all they satisfy your hungry bellies. Veggies or fruit alone will never satisfy you, since they don't provide enough calories. Top notch doctors, like Neil Barnard, John A. McDougall, Michael Gregger and Garth Davis say so as well.

So with the help of these tricks, your healthy low-fat, plant-based dishes will taste delicious. Also adding a little sugar, and salt to your dishes will yummyfy your food big time. These two ingredients of course shouldn't be used in excess, but adding these mindfully will help you enjoy your plant-based healthy food.

That being said, there are a few people who will develop serious problems after eating salt, like swollen feet etc, and therefore should stay away from salt. But according to Dr. McDougall the general population may enjoy this ingredient.

He, and Dr. Neil Barnard also say sugar doesn't cause diabetes, and that the real root of the problem is fat. Sounds hard to believe? Then watch "What the Health" or read Dr. McDougall's book "The Starch Solution". 

Now it's time for today's recipe: A delicious, Swabian lentil stew with potatoes. Here's what you'll need:

6 Tbsp onion, chopped finely
200 g (7 oz) raw lentils, rinsed & drained
1 tsp garlic, chopped finely
1500 ml (50,7 fl. oz) water
5 big bay leafs
1 carrot, sliced
3 Tbsp apple vinegar
Salt to taste
Potatoes (as your side dish)

Add the chopped onions, and garlic to a pan without the addition of oil. Then set the heat to medium. Once they slightly changed their color, add the lentils, water, carrot and bay leafs. Let the mixture simmer for about 40-45 minutes or until your lentils are slightly overcooked.  Yup, that's correct - this stew requires ultra-soft,  slightly overcooked lentils.

Meanwhile cook your potatoes ( in a separate pan).  Once your lentils are done cooking, add the vinegar and salt. Drain your potatoes and voila - your yummy stew and potatoes are ready to be served. Enjoy!

Love, Peppa:-)
