In today's world, cooking interesting, fast, nutritional and delicious food is difficult, especially for a growing family.
Let's face it, if you're spending less than 40 minutes in prep, and including fresh ingredients that are nutritious and tasty, the menu can start to feel like a routine...that gets boring.
This yellow curry was a very refreshing addition to our 'once or twice a month' list. It is flavorful but not too spicy (~6/10). It is flexible in that it is delicious with just veggies, and it can also handle sautéed chicken, or even grilled fish.
NOTE: I originally found this at WholeFoods but see it available for a fraction of the price on Amazon. :)
Here's what I do:
- put on a pot of rice (serves up to 4 adults)
- organize my protein and an array of diced fresh veggies that make sense together
- imagine a fish filet, or shrimp/prawns (I like to sauté or grill)
- baby tomatoes, peppers, onion, sweet peas(hold), and finely diced carrot (hold)
- if you like em, dice up some nuts or tofu as add-ins, or on their own
- 3/4 sauté the veg in a tiny bit of olive oil (keep the peas and carrots til later)
When the rice is about 10 minutes from ready:
- grill the meat or sauté it with the veg (don't overcook)
- pour one jar of Curry Love over the sautéed veg, and throw in the meat
- raise the temp til it starts to bubble
- add in the sweat peas and carrots (~3-4 minutes) & serve over rice
Ope a bottle of NZ Sauvignon Blanc, or a crispy Gwertz from British Columbia.
- 30 minutes and you're eating near-gourmet.
- serves 4 if you add enough veggies and meat otherwise 3-ish.
