Weeknight Quick: Easy Curry with Vegetables

It has been about one year since curry was first welcomed in our home. I have liked curry for years in restaurants, but my husband hated it. Thank you to a local Thai restaurant and a good dose of peer pressure that resulted in him actually trying it. Next thing I know it’s a family favorite. This recipe is inspired by a friend who happens to be a customer who has made a simple curry with vegetables with me a few times. I have taken it home and made it my own. I hope this is a great starting place for someone who wants to give curry a try to start and make their own. Happy Eating!

Ingredients:

1 can Coconut Milk

1 bay leaf

1 lb. Chicken Breast, Chopped, optional – or replace with firm tofu

1 small onion, chopped

1 tablespoon minced garlic

1 Tablespoon coconut oil

2 Tablespoons curry powder or paste to taste

Juice from 1 lime (optional)

1 Tablespoon grated ginger (optional)

3 cups chopped vegetables such as: yams, potatoes, carrots, snow peas, bell peppers, mushrooms.

Serve with cooked rice.

Directions:

  1. In a large pan combine the chicken breast, bay leaf, garlic, onion and ginger, peas, peppers and mushrooms if using. Saute in the coconut oil until chicken cooked through. Remove to a serving bowl.
  2. Meanwhile parboil the root vegetables (carrots, yams, potatoes) until just tender. Drain and add to the serving bowl
