I haven’t been in this space as much as I like to be, of late. There haven’t been many spare moments to do much else outside of making sure our girls are okay and doing our best to keep this business going through these really challenging times. All of you are experiencing the challenge. We are no different. We know it and we see it. We see it in the eyes of our customers as they pick up their ready-made meals.
Talking helps. I have rediscovered how special it is to hear a friends voice over the phone. Taking a little more time instead of a quick text. Hearing how they are really doing.
Today’s vegetarian curry recipe is thanks to a quick throw together dinner as I was chatting to a beautiful friend last week. I really wanted to hear her voice.
This dish made both the vegetarians and non-vegetarians in our house all smile wide (not always an easy feat in our home). It is healthy, wholesome and it is really delicious.
You could most definitely substitute other vegetables that you have in the fridge or garden instead of what is on my list below. Peas and zucchini are a lovely addition as are sugar snaps. You could substitute the potatoes and or pumpkin that I added for sweet potatoes instead.
I hope you really enjoy this simple yellow veggie curry. I hope you chat to someone you love and care about on the phone this week.
Sending you all our love,
