Yum! We made veggie bowls with this recipe. Lined the bowls with baby spinach then added a spoonful of basmati rice, the vegetable mixture/beans, fresh mint and fresh cilantro, lime slices. Perfect! Bought organic cauliflower from the farmer's market just for this occasion, too! Don't skip the mint! Made for Veg Tag/April.
So enjoyed! I forgot how hot my pepper flakes were. So ours was over the top hot. (A good thing). That is where the yogurt is a good thing I used home made broth. My carrots are very large so I used two. One large onion. I also used two tablespoons of powdered curry. I used basil in place of mint just because that is what I had more of. I did garnish with my mint that is just starting to grow for me. As for the lime I squeezed the juice in then tossed the lime halves in and then after simmering squeezed and removed to my mulch bin. I placed over saffron basmati rice and topped with a dollop of yogurt. I`m enjoying this as I type the review and I can see myself eating this right through the night. I must say every bite I take the more I love it! Very addictive! Who needs meat? Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Quite possibly the fastest meal I've ever prepared! Truly 22 minutes form start to finish. Including chopping cauliflower. I served it with basmati rice which also cooks quickly. Delicious! Made for Veggie Swap 3/13
