Recipe: Vegetable Curry

vegetarian curry

The beauty of a vegetarian curry is that you can just throw in lots of leftover vegetables that are going off in your fridge. At the time I had two bell peppers and carrots that were going off, and I hate waste, so I wanted to put them into a dish where you wouldn’t notice that they were on their way out. I love making big batches of things like this, so I can freeze it and defrost them when I am at a loss for what to take to work for lunch. I made this for a quick week day dinner for the family and it would be a good one for Meat Free Mondays.
