curryYou know how you feel when you haven’t been eating well…your body starts to crave something good. Well, this is my something good.

When I’ve eaten fast food the night before this easy and delicious curry hits the spot. It’s also a great way to use up vegetables in your refrigerator while they’re still fresh.

As she often does, my sister Kylie introduced me to this recipe. It’s a good one when you’re feeding a crowd as well. You can just keep adding more vegetables and coconut milk to make it stretch!
