Recipe

Curry seems to be a go to dish for many vegetarians and for good reason. It's packed with flavor and makes almost any legume or veggie taste delicious. It also is a dish that many times is meant to be served without meat, which can be a nice variation to constantly looking for ways to substitute for meat in recipes. This version is made with Madras curry powder for an Indian curry but you could easily use Thai curry paste depending on your preference. Adjust the curry powder/paste up or down to fit your tastes and add some cayenne if you like things extra spicy. If you don't have a slow cooker, this can be made on the stove top as well.
