Ten Minute Mild Vegan Curry

In an ideal world, I’d have nothing to do all day but create and blog about healthy, hearty recipes. Unfortunately, since I have yet to receive an offer to become Peyton Manning’s personal chef/adoring stay-at-home-fan, I’m hanging onto my day job and squeezing in cooking whenever time permits.

Some days, that time is a lot less prevalent than others. Luckily, that doesn’t have to translate into Burger King or skipped meals.

While I love a good, spicy curry, this was a terrific mild version for those with an aversion to strong flavors. I think next time I’ll be throwing in some cayenne for some extra zip.

Cashews or almonds would be delicious sprinkled over the top for some crunch and protein!

Far better than a Toxic Hell Taco Bell burrito, no?

Off to the gym with The Coach! I’m making him take his first yoga class – should be interesting 😉

  3. Baby corn, bamboo shoots, and water chestnuts! Those are all fun veggies that I haven’t eaten in a long time.

    Whenever I think of baby corn I think of Tom Hanks in “Big.” =)

  4. This looks REALLY good! I actually like mild dishes better, so this is right up my alley. 🙂 I’ve never made curry before but your recipe doesn’t look too intimidating. I’ll have to give it a try!
