Healthy Fall Vegan Stew

if you continue to see fall themed recipes on my blog and instagram for the next month or so and grow tired of them, i do apologize in advance. i just adore this season and the foods that come with it. therefore, i have been trying to fit as many seasonal dishes in as possible. Healthy Fall Vegan Stew highlights the ever delicious and grounding butternut squash & pumpkin.

lentils galore make Healthy Fall Vegan Stew hearty, earthy and super tasty. i used green lentils, but feel free to use whatever you have on hand or can get ahold of!

fresh ginger elevates all of the flavors in Healthy Fall Vegan Stew and really brings out the hint of pumpkin. mouthwatering spices like paprika, onion, garlic, cumin and chili powder take the dish from good to great and are a must in this recipe.

there’s another ingredient in Healthy Fall Vegan Stew that you may have never guessed was there! it’s creamy peanut butter! yes, peanut butter perfectly compliments all of the flavors in the stew and makes it extra special.

i’m so grateful for the abundance of amazing plant-based foods. there are endless amounts of vegan dishes that you can make and continuously feel so satisfied! hope you all enjoy Healthy Fall Vegan Stew 🙂
