Gosh it has been a while since I last managed to find time to post anything on here… life has been crazy, I got a new job, moved out of the cabin and now am in a lovely little flat… with a very small kitchen and no internet! It has made life interesting! It is a rented flat as well, with a dodgy cooker which is slowly driving me mad… the temp keeps changing, some days it cooks hot other days not so much!
One of my all time fave dinners is Nicks veggie curry, and to make it extra special because I had a day off last week I made vegan naan bread! So here you go, fantastic veggie curry and naan.(I am afraid the naan is not g/f but the curry is!)
What you will need:
- Lentils about 150g
- 1 small cauliflower
- 4 carrots
- 1 pepper
- 1 small Cabbage
- Spinach (fresh or frozen)
- Onion (optional – I cant eat them but I know most people do!)
- Mild curry power
- Garam Masala
- Coconut milk
- Veggie Stock
- 1 tsp. active dry yeast (1/2 package)
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 1 Tbsp. sugar
- 3 Tbsp. soy milk
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 3/4-2 cups bread flour
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
What you need to do:
If you want to make the naan you might need to make them the day before, or start early! It will take at least 2hrs to make them. The curry will take about 45mins!
- To make the naan follow this recipe: Vegan Naan
- Start your curry…Wash your lentils, the cover with water and simmer until they start to go pale, almost translucent, (about 20mins)
- Peal and chop the carrots and cauliflower, pepper, cabbage (and onion if your using it!)
- Fry all the veg together in a large frying pan or wok. Once all veg is tender, drain then add the cooked lentils, coconut milk, and stock.
- Now add the spice to taste, this really is a taste thing because different brands will make a huge difference when it comes with mixed spices!
- Let the curry simmer and reduce down for about 10mins. Now add the spinach – If you are doing from this frozen it will brake up quite quickly, if it is from fresh be amazed at how small it becomes once it has wilted!!
- Check on your naan bread, if you made them earlier you might want to toast them to warm them up again 🙂
- Now enjoy!! For variations you might want add chickpeas or other seasonal veggies try with and without the coconut milk (you might need to add a little soya milk)
