Quick Vegetable Curry is an easy, quick-to-fix dish of vegetables using eggplants, zucchini,onions, red peppers and mushrooms that is cooked in vegetable stock and coconut milk and seasoned with garlic, ginger, basil, curry powder and lime juice served over a bed of rice.
It’s my favorite way to eat my veggies.
1 tbsp. olive oil 1 red onion, chopped into wedges 1 tbsp. peeled and finely chopped ginger 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped 2 tbsp. curry powder ½ cup vegetable stock 1 tbsp. corn-starch 1 ½ cups canned coconut milk, full-fat 1 eggplant, chopped 1 zucchini, sliced 1 1/2 cups mushrooms, quartered 1 red bell pepper, chopped 1/2 tsp. lime zest 1 tbsp. lime juice 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped 3 cups cooked rice
Heat the oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion, ginger, and garlic and cook, for 4 minutes or until soft. Stir in the curry powder and cook for another minute. Prepare the vegetable stock and mix it well with the corn-starch. Add the vegetable stock mixture to the pan along with the coconut milk and chopped vegetables. Season with salt & pepper and mix well. Simmer for 10-15 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in the lime zest and lime juice just before serving. Spoon rice onto plates and top with vegetable curry, garnish with fresh basil to serve.
