Easy Coconut Curry

This curry is so straight forward, I can almost make it with my eyes closed. It’s one of my go-to week night recipes because I know it will be on the table in 30 minutes. It also happens to be loaded with vegetables, just in time to help you get back on track for 2017! I suggest making it in a large soup pot and feel free to throw in any vegetables you have on hand.

Tip: This curry can be served over brown rice or quinoa. I suggest quinoa if you’re in a hurry because it’s ready in just 15 minutes. If you’re a big fan of coconut, you can cook your quinoa in coconut milk (1 cup quinoa + 1 can of coconut milk).
