Potato-Green Pea Samosa Filling

This stuff is amazing. So amazing, in fact, that I never really bother making the actual samosas. This stuff doesn't need a little doughy jacket to be complete. It's perfect and wonderful on its own. Free the filling!

Potato-Green Pea Samosa Filling
Recipe modified slightly from Vegan with a Vengeance

3 medium-sized russet potatoes, cut into 1'' chunks
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
1 medium-sized onion, finely chopped
1 cup finely diced carrots
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
pinch of cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon salt
juice of 1 lemon
3/4 cup green peas

Boil the potatoes until tender, 15-25 minutes depending how big your chunks are. Drain and set aside.

Heat the oil, cumin seeds, and mustard seeds in a large skillet over medium heat. use a lid if you don't want seeds in your eyes. (You don't.) Let the seeds pop for a minute, then add the onions and carrots. Raise the heat to medium-high and saute for 7 to 10 minutes, or until the onions begin to brown. Add the garlic, ginger, coriander, turmeric, cayenne, salt, and lemon juice and saute for another minute.

Add the cooked potatoes. Mash them to your liking with a wooden spoon or a potato masher. Throw in the peas. Let them heat up for a minute or two, then dig in.

Serves 2 hungry people as a main dish, possibly 3 if you're less ravenous.

I'll have to pick up some of those spices, but everything else is stuff I usually have around. I love new recipes that don't involve a lot of new fancy ingredients because I know I'll make it more than once. Thanks for posting this! I should really just go out and purchase VwaV.

Yeah, I think pretty much everyone should own VwaV. You. Your doctor. Your doctor's grandma's secret lover. I've never made something bad from it, and most of the recipes don't require unusual things. If every person who thinks vegan food is bland and disgusting was given a copy of this book I think the world would be a better place.

I just made this last night, and I have to tell you, it was DYN-O-MITE! I served it over some brown basmati rice, which I prepare with salt and olive oil to make it creamy and delicious. Rice + samosa filling = enough for four very large servings.

I also bought the ingredients to make the spicey peanut noodles (with added broccoli and tempeh), but it looks like I won't need it until the end of the week at the earliest.

Oh man, isn't it amazing? I might make it tonight because now you've got it in my head. The recipe usually only makes 2 or 3 servings for me because I don't eat it with anything else. I like to let its individual deliciousness shine. :) I hope you like the peanut noodles!

what a delicious recipe, the flavor of this recipe is astounding even for non-vegan people.

Thanks for the nice blog. It was very useful for me. Keep sharing such ideas in the future as well. This was actually what I was looking for, and I am glad to came here! Thanks for sharing the such information with us.
