Vegan MoFo 2015 - Day 3

"Quick, easy & Delicious"

When I have to cook something that falls into this category, it's generally going to be a curry. 

I usually wing it by frying some onions and garlic, chopping up whatever veg are in the fridge and throwing them in, adding some curry paste and veg stock, adding a tin of chickpeas and letting it cook for 20 minutes or so (depending on what veggies are in it). Then at the end I add some coconut yogurt or coconut cream (or just plain yogurt if that's what I have) and it's done.

This one is one I was trying to make look all fancy for ma man! It was kind of a dahl that I threw together and served over baked slices of aubergine and sweet potato.

Here are some rough instructions for how I did this:

Chop a small onion and fry in a bit of oil or cooking spray. Add spices (you can use pre mixed curry powder but i used:

1/2 tsp whole cumin seeds

1/2 tsp paprika
Pinch cinnamon
1tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp turmeric
As many chilli flakes as you like or a fresh one

Then let it toast a bit and add a couple of minced cloves of garlic. Add more oil or cooking spray if needed.

Add about 2 cups of hot water, a cup of chopped tomatoes and 1/2 - 3/4 cup of red lentils. Bring to boil, season (I added 2 veggie oxo cubes) and simmer for about half an hour. Adding more water if needed and stirring often.

Once cooked, add in some fresh coriander (small handful).

I served it with brown rice and some slices of sweet potato & aubergine that I sprayed lightly with oil and baked at 200°C for about 40 mins.



  1. Looks good. My post today was a Dahl too :)

  2. Nothing beats a curry in a hurry! It looks so tasty and beautifully plated. I bet Mr. Alien was super impressed with your fanceh skillz! :D

  3. This looks fancy, indeed. And delicious.

  4. I'm so happy you make a curry too! <3 It looks amazing! I love that you served it over aubergine, I'll have to try that next time.
