Vegan MOFO - Day 5: Cashew Curry
You can really add whatever vegetables you want to it!
Cashew Curry sauce:
1/2 cup of raw cashews
1/2 cup of coconut cream
4 tablespoons of red curry paste
4 tablespoons of curry powder
1/2 cup of diced tomatoes
3 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup of water + 2 teaspoons of vegetable stock powder added.
Blend all ingredients until smooth in a food processor - yes, it's really that easy!
For the vegetables I used:
2 potatoes, cut into chunks
2 carrots, cut into chunks
1/2 cup of corn kernels
4 cups of loose spinach
1 large broccoli, cut into florets
1 cup of chickpeas (pre soaked or tinned)
1 large onion, diced
3 cloves of garlic, diced
1 tablespoon of red curry paste
1 tablespoon of curry powder
Gently par-boil carrot and potato until almost cooked (still firm) take off the heat and add broccoli for 5 minutes until also slightly cooked.
Place onion, garlic, and curry paste/powder into a frying pan with oil, cook until onion is translucent and curry is fragrant
add par-boiled vegetables, corn and chickpeas, stir well to combine.
Add sauce, and cook through for about 10-15 minutes.
Once sauce is heated through, add spinach and cook until wilted.
Serve with rice.
