This time of year, it can be hard to find a dinner that doesn’t take too long and is healthy and filling. As busy moms with hectic work schedules, we totally get it! It can be all too tempting to grab your favorite take-out and call it a night.
That’s why we’ve come up with this recipe! And trust us, it’ll beat your take-out any day :)
This is a warming, nourishing curry that you can enjoy over steamed kale or cauliflower rice. It’s filling and hearty while still being cleanse-friendly AND vegan-friendly (meatless Monday, anyone?). Plus, it doesn’t take long to make, and is a one-pot meal so you’ll save time on dishes, too!
With love and yummy vegan curries,
