Potato & Pea Samosas (Vegan)

"This is a mild samosa suitable for children, while maintaining a flavor adults also love. My kids love it with some ketchup for dipping, while adults could enjoy it with an Indian dipping sauce such as plum or mango."

<p>I'm 36 and a SAHM to my gorgeous 5 children. I have 4 boys aged 11, 10, 7 &amp; 6 and a baby girl who is 4. Needless to say I have plenty of people to cook for. :) <br /> <br />I'm vegan and raising my children vegan also. I cook everyday and rarely make the same thing twice as I just love to try new things. I experiment constantly with recipes, tweaking them based on my children's taste and what's available in my fridge and pantry. <br /> <br />I try to avoid processed foods, limit soy, and focus on organic whenever possible. Our diet consists of mainly fruit, vegetables, grains, beans, nuts, and nut/rice milks. <br /> <br />Even though my children keep me busy and I homeshool them, I make the time to cook 99% of what we eat from scratch.</p>
