Plant-Based Curry

My Quick & Delicious Plant-Based Curry is very simple to make. I’ve packed it with a variety of vegetables that I had to hand – carrots, celery, broccoli and potatoes, but you can add whatever you want – mini corn, sweet potato, cauliflower, green beans, peas, etc. It’s that versatile!

Jam packed with fibre and beta carotene, from the vegetables, it’s an ideal dish to make when you come in from work. I served it with brown rice and it was wonderfully filling.

If you’re cooking just for yourself, you can either divide the ingredients in half to reduce the size of the portions, or you can divide it up once you’ve cooked it into equal portions that you can put in the fridge for later in the week, or freeze to use in the coming weeks.

Oh, I just about forgot! Here’s a wee tip for you to ensure your sauce doesn’t become lumpy… make sure you blend the flour in a little at a time and make sure you really stir it in to the mixture.

If you make it, let me know how you get on.

Here’s the recipe for my Quick & Delicious Plant-Based Curry. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
