Super simple, quick and easy dinner in the house!
Who’s into this big ol’ bowl of love?
I, for one, am so into it.
We’ve made this dinner…three times in the past few weeks? Maybe more?
It’s honestly just perfect for this time of year. The weather is getting cool, we’re wearing slippers during all hours of the day, and I’m looking for a simple weeknight meal that’s quick and filling.
A warm, creamy, veg-filled curry is exactly what the perpetually cold and lovers of coziness need.
The quickness of this recipe comes from the use of frozen vegetables. Tbh, frozen veggies show up on my grocery receipt every single week because they don’t really go bad and they’re always fresh.
So they go in a pot with some sautéed onion, spices, coconut milk, and canned pineapple. Bring to a boil and serve with rice and crispy tofu.
I love this recipe because I can get it on the table after a long day with minimal effort. I haven’t really wanted to spend a ton of time in the kitchen recently, so being able to get a warm, filling, nourishing dinner on the table in 20 minutes has been a huge weeknight win for me!
I pile mine high with fresh cilantro and green onion, and a small squeeze of sriracha really brings it all together.
Love this creamy bowl of yum!Print

*You can use whatever frozen veggies you want here, but I found a stir-fry mix at my local store that worked great! Frozen broccoli, corn, green beans, peppers, etc. all work great.
