This is my version of a recipe I saw in Bon Appétite (August 2014), WATCH OUT, it has white wine and other “emergency” ingredients. I’m in love with Bon Appétite and with Saveur magazines, in fact, these two are the only ones I buy. I do not buy anything else, not fashion, not DIY, not decor.
I don’t mind these recipes are not plant based, I just love how the chefs cook, the combinations of flavors and textures and the pictures…. OMG! I just love them, I think every photo in those magazines has the unique purpose of bringing more, and more beauty into this world. I’m a foodie, so I find it a perfect medium to make the world more beautiful and yummier.
This curry was meant to cook clams or mussels or something like that. Even though I do not eat that, veggies get along with anything. And it is soooo fast to make and the flavors are sooo delicious that I’ll bet you will impress EVERYBODY at your dinner table.??(Shhh, but this dish makes you look like a pro)
I prepared it with roasted carrots and cauliflower, the vegetables I had in the fridge. But it also tastes amazing with broccoli, and asparagus, etc. You name it!
To put this recipe together at the same time, what you have to do is plan ahead a bit. When you go into the kitchen, crank the oven to 450º. Start cooking quinoa or the grain you will be using. Chop veggies, add a bit of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Place them in the oven when the oven is heated through. Place all the ingredients in the pot for the curry and bring them to a simmer. Voilà!!! You are done! Here is the recipe, please share it if you like it.

Same with coconut milk, seeks to have fewer ingredients.
The white wine used a white wine that you would take after you, a good one.
