Vegetable Curry

Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten free, Dairy fee, Egg free

Preparation Time 20 minutes

Cooking Time 30 minutes

Personal Note – The great thing about this recipe is that you can use any veggies you have so it’s great for the end of the week when you’re clearing out your fridge.  It also goes great with chickpeas, noodle or served with rice. Really it’s a good cupboard clearer.

I’m a vegetarian but try to make a lot of my meals vegan however my partner is a meat eater so sometime it’s hard to find meals we both enjoy without having to cook two meals. So my partner can still get his meat fix I use the paste to marinate the meat in. I have found this works really well with prawns.

Tips – Remove the seed from the chilli if you don’t like it spicy and if you have left over it freezers really well. If you don’t have tamari you can use soy sauce.
