Robin Robertson ~ During this hectic time of year, it can sometimes be a challenge to find time to make a nutritious dinner when we’re busy with a zillion other things. With a little planning, there are lots of ways to save time and get quick and easy meals ready. Here are just a few ideas:
1. Make a large batch of brown rice and portion and freeze it to use as you need it.
2. Keep your pantry stocked with a variety of canned beans, tomatoes, and other pantry staples and keep some frozen green peas, spinach, and other vegetables on hand as well.
3. Plan some one-dish meals to save clean-up and make extra so you have leftovers for lunch or another dinner.
The following recipe incorporates all three of these tips and if you’re a fan of curry, then this recipe is definitely for you. It goes together in a flash in one saucepan and combines fresh cauliflower and other vegetables including frozen peas for color, canned tomatoes and chickpeas from the pantry, all swathed in a creamy rich coconut curry sauce. Serve over cooked brown basmati rice (that you’ve cooked ahead) and dinner is served.
Summary: Coconut milk adds richness to the flavorful sauce that can be made hot or mild, depending on the curry powder or paste that you use. Serve over cooked basmati rice.
