You know when you find a recipe that is so perfect you could eat it year-round? This, my friends, is one of those recipes! Nourishing, incredibly flavorful, full of easy ingredients and even easier on the bank account — this curry’s got it all. Another thing I adore about this curry is that it’s highly adaptable. It’s vegan and veggie friendly, but can easily be beefed up (literally and figuratively) with some shredded protein and more veggies for a wider variation. I would suggest serving it alongside colorful roasted veggies or under tender grilled chicken, but the options are endless.
