I've been trying to incorporate more veggies into my diet. They are super healthy, full of fiber and vitamins, all in all great for you and your body. It is really important to eat your vegetables as your parents and grandparents always tell you to.
I have been living alone for almost two years now and learned the hard way that it is important to cook for myself and not eat out everyday. It gets expensive and I like knowing what goes into my body. As I am not the best chef in town, I like easy, fast dishes. This is a perfect example of one of those. I like to make a bunch so it is enough for a couple of days.
As I said, this veggie curry is healthy and super fast to make. If you like curry, you should definitely try it out. It's also a great vegan option.
It took me about an hour with the preparation. I made quinoa to accompany it, but you can use rice or really whatever you like. Also you can add more veggies or take some out, really personal preference. You can add for example: beans, potatoes, chicken
Veggies: Green beans, Brokkoli, Carrots, Sweet Potato, Peas, Chickpeas, Spinach, Brussels Sprouts, Celery, Mushrooms, Onion
Curry powder or paste. Almond cream, salt and pepper to season. Also quinoa or rice. A little coconut oil to put under the veggies.
The amount your using depends on how much you want to make. I made about 4-5 servings, so I put plenty of everything into it. Also I used some frozen veggies, just put them in at the same time it will be fine.
1. Cut all the carrots, sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts, celery, mushrooms into small pieces, chop the onion also. All of the others can go in the size they are. Put about a teaspoon of coconut oil under the veggies so they don't burn.
2. Put all of the veggies into a pot and start cooking them. While the veggies are cooking you can prepare your side of rice or quinoa so it will be done at about the same time.
3. I cooked them for about ten minutes before adding in the curry and almond cream.
4. After adding the curry and almond cream cook for about 10-15 minutes. Stir occasionally as it can stick to the bottom of the pan.
5. Serve and enjoy.
Have a good day. Xenia
