It’s been nearly a year since the last time I ate vegetable samosas.
In March of this year, I decided to start making my own, and my wife was thrilled with my results.
So I took it to my grocery store and bought a box of dried vegetables.
It was a perfect starting point for this post.
I made it from scratch, and made it just for my wife.
I’ll call it Green Leafy Vegetables.
And since I’m a big fan of veggies, I also got a box to give it a try.
And boy, did it taste amazing.
So, in honor of the Green Leaf, I’ll show you what my wife thought of it.
It’s a very easy recipe to make.
But, if you don’t have a canning jar handy, I recommend this easy recipe for homemade vegetable samoas.
It makes a big batch, so it’s great for a family meal or for a quick snack.
But for a busy weeknight, I usually make at least 2 servings.
I also make 2 batches to freeze.

Remove the vegetables from the saucepan, and stir to combine.

If you prefer a more subtle, more peppery flavor, you can add in more herbs, like parsley or thyme.
Serve the samosás immediately with a generous serving of cabbage or a salad.
