All-In Veggie Curry

All-In Veggie Curry

This simple and hearty dish is delicious way to use up lots of veggies, and is also a great option if you are cooking for family/friends that don't eat meat. That being said, would be easy to add a chicken breast, prawns or a poached egg on top for additional protein. All done in one pot, so quick clean-up too! Enjoy the beautiful rainbow of veggies….
