Thai Curry (Award Winning!)

Ok, ok, I didn't win an award perse, but last night after we killed our bowls of curry in one bite, VegKid inducted me in to "The Good Cooker Club," complete with a certificate of achievement and a lovely ceremony. It was touching. Anyway, enough tooting my own horn and more about the curry.

A good curry warms my soul and puts a smile on my face. It is one of my favorite things to enjoy during a feeding opportunity. I don't discriminate against curries either. They are all good in my mouth. Whether they are from India, Thailand, Jamaica, or China, I will devour the goodness. There are quite a few quick and uber easy recipes for curry: 1) saute veggies, 2) throw in some curry, and 3) add a can of coconut milk. This is a quick fix but if you have the time to build the foundation of a good curry, you might not ever go back to the quick fix. Don't get me wrong, this curry is super duper easy! The trick is in the coconut milk. You don't just add the coconut milk at the end because a good curry is ALL ABOUT THE COCONUT MILK!

seconds were had by all

2 cans coconut milk
3 stalks lemongrass, diced
1/4 tsp + 1/8 tsp cardamom, ground
A knob of ginger, minced
1 onion, diced
4 garlic cloves, minced
4 carrots, peeled and diced
1 cauliflower, cut into bite sized florets
2 red bell pepper, chopped
3 zucchini, chopped
6 Yukon potatoes, diced
3 tbsp curry
cumin, salt, and pepper to taste
Small bag of frozen peas, thawed
1 tomato, diced
Cilantro to garnish

  1. Pour the cans of coconut milk into a pot. Add the ginger, lemongrass, cardamom. Bring  to a boil, then lower to a simmer and let simmer for about an hour, then strain and put aside.
  2. Sauté your onion, when it starts to soften, throw in the minced garlic and your carrots.
  3. Give her a stir and add in the potatoes, cauliflower, red bell peppers and zucchinis. Cook the ole'gal for five minutes, or so.
  4. After that toss in your curry, cumin, salt, and pepper. Stir.
  5. Add your luscious coconut milk to the pot and let simmer until your veggies are nice and soft.
  6. In the end throw in a bag of defrosted frozen peas, chopped tomato, and cilantro. Stir.

You can serve this over your favorite rice, but if you do, I would eject the potatoes from the dish. I throw in the potatoes to make the dish a whole meal all on it’s own, so I can forget about the rice.

    I believe I will be making this tomorrow.

    1. Unless you are having your little ones eat this too, then I would throw in a chili pepper or two to the coconut broth in the beginning. But I highly recommend this for the kids; so use some sriracha on your individual dishes. Either way it is great and even better the next day when the flavors get a while to marry .

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

I’m not gonna lie to you my pizza was very bomb but everything else was very not.

Firenza (located in downtown Boise) looks, feels, and acts like a corporate fast food franchise because it is a corporate fast food franchise but it’s a corporate fast food franchise that offers vegan pizza, and if it wasn’t for the damn up-charges it would be, on the cheap. 

My guests and I walked through the front door of Firenza (which was kinda hard to find to be honest) and I immediately got thrown back to my high school cafeteria and not in a pleasant way. Imagine bare white walls and what looks like a giant high school logo painted over a pizza assembly line. 
We approached the pizza assembly line and I immediately told the staff member who welcomed us that this was our first time visiting the restaurant and asked for guidance. They said ok and blankly stared at us until I eventually broke the awkward silence and started asking about vegan options. 
The sauces on the menu were clearly marked as veg…

Savory Taco Pancakes

Below is an actual text I sent to my partner and son, but first some context: I practice Intermittent Fasting every day, so breakfast doesn't get served until noon or later daily - thus it's not really referred to as breakfast. We usually refer to it as "first meal" and sometimes brunch. My kid and partner can't really handle the late first meal on the weekends, but they deal surprisingly well. While I was making first meal today, my son was snacking on leftover cold pizza from yesterday and my partner was chugging a blueberry protein shake. So what does this have to do with the above referenced text? Well when they grew tired of waiting on me to finish putting together this dish, they decided to run down to our closest music store and grab some new guitar strings. Almost immediately after their departure, I had completed today's first meal and let me tell you I feel like a completed a masterpiece. So here's the text I sent in a group message as the van w…
