There are so many misconceptions about a vegan diet, one of those being that it is expensive, and that vegans are an elite, snobby bunch. It drives me insane, and until the day I die I will be doing my best to disprove that. This meal is a great example of a super filling, healthy, inexpensive, and most important delicious vegan meal. A super simple lentil, potato and spinach curry with Jasmine rice. Since I cooked the lentils and potatoes in the morning, in the time it took to cook the rice this whole meal was ready. Any diet can be fussy and expensive, I've certainly seen some very pricey non vegan foods, and pricey grocery stores like Whole Foods sell a lot of non vegan foods. It didn't get thenickname Whole Paycheck from vegan food only. To be honest I've had people question the cost of vegan food more than where I get my protein, and it always makes me cringe. I fear one of these days I'm going to lose it and hulk out.
