Vegetable Coconut Curry

Vegan Vegetable Coconut Curry

After weeks of warm weather we have had a few cold days here in North Carolina, so I wanted something warm and filling.  I also have been craving curry, so this dish was perfect.  Curry is one of my favorite things to eat.  I love all the bold flavors and the spice.  For this curry, I roasted the veggies, put in some chick peas and I served it over brown rice.


Curry Tempeh Salad


Before becoming vegan I loved chicken curry salad.  This is the veganized version of it.  I used tempeh to replace the chicken and added some fruit and veggies to make it more nutritious.  The tempeh is a great source of protein and has a really mild flavor after it is boiled.  Look for reduced fat or fat free vegan mayo (Veganaise makes both).  I like to serve mine over lettuce, but it is also great as a sandwich or in pita bread.

I was getting ready to go out of town for a few days, so I needed to make a quick dinner in the midst of packing.  This meal is super easy to make, but is so good and nutritious.  The quinoa is packed with protein.  I served the quinoa with a collard green salad tonight, but I usually just put it over some mixed greens.  You may want to double the recipe because it makes a great lunch the next day.
