Vegan Spicy Curry



So I have been a big fan of curry dishes for a long time.  My mama would cook dinner every night back at the ranch and sometimes it was delicious curry dishes.  She is Dutch Indonesian so I love culturally rich foods.  I have tried to do this dish before just trying to eye ball it and I always seems like it was watered down or lacking something in the flavor…but this dish checks all the boxes.  It is hands down one of the best vegan dishes I’ve ever made!

Y’all have to try it and let me know what you loved or changed!

This recipe makes a lot of food, I’ve probably had 8 servings already.  Which is great for me because while breast-feeding I have seriously never been hungrier! And I don’t always have time to cook but I will not ever get fast food so having meals ready in the fridge is a must for this household.  My husband also comes home at different times everyday so its nice to be able to dish him up a home made meal whenever he comes in.
