Curry Vegetable Rice

IMG_6617

I know I am crazy…but I swear the hub & I are counting down the days to Fall! The idea of sweaters, scarves & long walks on chilly nights sounds amazing to me! While I am waiting for the seasons to change, I decided to create a colder weather meal in the kitchen – curry veggie rice, yum!

I may regret saying I can’t wait for colder weather, but this meal was worth it!

Lets get to it…

  1. In a deep pan add: Β 1.5 diced yellow onion, 1 small sweet potato diced, 4 peeled/diced carrots, 1C water, 1T EVOO, 1t turmeric & 1t salt/pepper – let simmer until all are soft (20-30minutes)
  2. In a separate pot boil: 1C basmati brown rice, 1T earth balance buttery spread & 1.5C veggie broth & cook as directed Β (if rice soaks up broth add in more veg stock so it doesn’t burn)
  3. Once both are cooked add rice to the veggie mixture
  4. In the combined pot put in 2C spinach, 3T nutritional yeast, 2T unsweetened coconut flakes, 3T curry paste & 2t turmeric – stir til mixed well

Serve piping hot & with a side of sriracha & crackers! I am addicted to this stuff πŸ™‚

We are off to Montreal in the morning for a long weekend so be sure to check outΒ my InstagramΒ for travel pictures!
