Recipe by Kozmic Blues
Craving curry, but don't have any rice? I found that serving this creamy Thai chickpea curry over smashed potatoes seasoned with just a touch of curry powder worked just fine. This meal was so quick and simple, and it was made from stuff found right in my pantry. The ultimate test was my better-half, who usually "has to be in the mood" for curry... She ate it up and never looked back. This was a kind of knock-off of the shrimp curry recipe found on the side of the red curry paste jar. I usually substitute Braggs Liquid Aminos for the fish sauce traditionally found in most thai curries
- 2 1⁄2 lbs potatoes, peeled and boiled
- 2 tablespoons vegan sour cream, I use Tofutti brand
- 1 -2 tablespoon margarine, I use Earth Balance
