Here are the ingredients all chopped and ready to go into the pot!
Creamy Curried Vegetables
1 Onion, sliced
4-6 Cloves of Garlic, crushed
1-3 Carrots (I used only one, but added about 4 yellow squash), chopped
1 1/2C Cauliflower (I also added broccoli)
Some Mushrooms (I had some Oyster Mushrooms lying around so I used those)
1 Potato, peeled and cubed
1C frozen Peas
1T Curry Powder
1/2t Cumin seeds
1/8t Cayenne Pepper (I only use the tiniest amount as it blows my kids' heads off!)
1 tin Coconut Milk (I only had coconut cream, works the same)
rice or rice noodles, to serve
Heat a little bit of oil in a saucepan. Add onion, garlic and carrot and cook until onion is clear. Add rest of vegetables (except peas), curry powder, turmeric, cumin, & cayenne pepper. Stir for 2-4 minutes, making sure it doesn't stick too much to the bottom. Add in the coconut milk, cover and simmer until potato is soft, about 10-20 minutes. Add peas and Braggs and continue to stir until sauce thickens. Serve over rice noodles.
So anyway, today I had had enough of being controlled by the television and the internet. It sucks me in all day, every day! I never seem to get anything done or be bothered doing the simplest tasks. Does anyone else ever feel like this???
I had a chat to the kids and told them we were to have a technology-free week. No TV, DVD's, Nintendo, radio, DS, phones, internet, computers....etc etc. So I put a note on the TV that reads:
There are a few exceptions. I want to continue this blog and I feel I have committed to this, so I told the kids I would only blog on here at night after they were in bed for VeganMoFo and to look up new recipes to cook and blog about. Also, at any time in the day, I may turn on 1 song from my iPod and we all have to stop what we are doing and boogie to it! Just for fun.
The kids seem happy with the idea. My nephew arrived today so they don't care because they are quite happy to amuse themselves with their own games. But it is proving a little bit lonesome for me. I think I will read quite a few books over the next week! Anyway, we'll see how it goes! I already have a clean loungeAND kitchen which is unheard of in this house!!
Oh, I nearly forgot!! Check out what I scored on ebay today:
Sorry about the crappy photo. I just quickly took it then because I just remembered!
A BOKASHI BUCKET!!!!!!
I got it for about half RRP and it has hardly been used! The eco bokashi grain stuff is the original it came with! I am so happy I won this. If I didn't win this today I was going to go and buy I new one (which I REALLY can't afford!). Now my worms can breathe a little easier! I have 2 worm farms and they STILL can't keep up with my fruit and vege scraps! And the bokashi bucket can take all types of food, so NO MORE WASTE! It all goes in the bucket. If you don't know the benefits of the bokashi, google it! As an added bonus, it turns out the seller lives in the same suburb as me, only a few minutes walk away! It was meant to happen!!
Well, better get off this banned piece of equipment and umm, read a book.
