A most amazing curry for dinner tonight!

I love it when I just throw things together and it turns out freaking amazing! Looked in the fridge and took a quick inventory of available ingredients:

Leftover roasted chicken

Fresh cauliflower

Scallions

Garlic

Sweet potatoes

Chicken Stock

Coconut milk....

Hmmmm. It's pretty chilly here in NH-perfect soup or stew weather. So, I grabbed some curry powder, coriander, cumin, salt, pepper and crushed red pepper and chopped up the cauliflower into florets and the sweet potatoes into cubes. I tossed all the spices and veggies together and sauteed them in coconut oil with some chopped garlic, then added a can of coconut milk and some chicken stock to thin it out a little. Let it simmer till the veggies were tender, added the cubed cooked chicken, another pinch of salt and pepper, then finished with scallions. O.M.G

SO FREAKING GOOD, if I do say so myself! I adore curry, but haven't really experimented with different veggies and such. Best part was that it took all of 30 minutes start to finish and there is PLENTY for dinner tomorrow (unless I take a container to school for lunch.... ;) )

I am making my first curry tomorrow...hoping it turns out! I am so in awe of anyone that just throws things together and it ends up yummy! I am just not that way yet...I'm so Type A and need a recipe. Hopefully the more I cook the more I learn to wing it!

I love Thai curry but dislike even the smell of Indian curry. But everyone tells me I'm missing out on some fabulous food, so during this Whole100, I am on a mission to fix an Indian curry (with that stinky awful curry powder) at least once or twice and give it an honest shot. It does look easy.

I'm just the opposite. I am not a fan of red curries at all! I love the smell of Indian curry, but my husband is not a fan, so I only make it once a month or so. He likes the flavor, just not the smell! And it does stink up the house for the night!

Bravo! I loved it! I added some minced fresh ginger to the seasoning and used my hot curry powder from Penzeys. I also used sweet potato, onion, and heirloom tomato in the actual curry; I put the cauliflower in the blender and then sauteed it with mint for a nice refreshing faux couscous. I suggest chicken thighs for this dish if you have them available. That rich dark meat flavor really adds to the curry. This one really helped clear out my head cold! Thanks!♡
