Vegan Lentil Stew

这周又是一个传统食谱!必威特别投注!

这道炖菜使我想起了我的童年。我妈妈过去每隔一周就安排一次周三的午餐。因为周三学校放学很早,我们过去常常在家吃午饭。

When it wasn't this stew,it was spaghetti bolognese on the menu.It was pretty cool because as soon as the week would start,my brothers and I would already be looking forward to Wednesday cause we knew we'd have a nice lunch.

I miss these good old days,当我完成学业,回家吃美味的、已经准备好的午餐时。Well,things are not that different today,except I am the one who cooks now and do the dishes.哦,adult life.

所以,这小扁豆炖!It's unbelievably simple and tasty.It's healthy,vegan,super easy to prepare and full of earthy flavours.

It's been raining all day in London today and this stew is the perfect comfort meal I needed!Happy Thursday!!
