Last week, my wife and I received a newsletter for each of our children that we sponsor through Compassion International. One of the items included in each newsletter was a recipe for a native dish that is typically eaten by the child. Feeling inspired by the recipes, and seeing the opportunity to add the new recipes to my 50 in 15 Challenge, I decided to try my hand at each one.

First up was this recipe for Groundnut (Peanut) Stew, which is a recipe from Northern Uganda where our sponsor child Stuart lives. I looked at a few other recipes for Peanut Soup, and saw that there is a variety of ingredients that can be used, but I chose to stick with the recipe and ingredients from the Compassion newsletter. The end result was surprisingly tasty — sort of like a peanut-flavored vegetable curry. And it just so happens that it’s both vegetarian- and vegan-friendly.

I’m a huge fan of homemade granola and granola bars. Well this is far and away one of my favorite granola bar recipes that I’ve come across. It’s simple and easy, contains only 6 ingredients, and can be made to suit vegan diets. And unlike many store-bought granola bars, you have complete control over the ingredients, so you can be sure everything is natural and healthy. Depending on how long you bake these bars and whether you use honey or agave, the end result may not be as chewy as the Chewy Fruit & Nut Granola Bars, but it’s delicious and addicting nonetheless.
