Recipe: Massaman Quorn + Vegetable Curry
Hello guys, sorry I havent updated in a while, but i've had a few things on my mind. I won't go into it, but i've had a rather traumatic week, and my life's suddenly been flipped upside down again. Ah well, i'm a tough girl, i've just got to soldier on with it all, like i've done with all my problems in the past.
Anyway, this is a nice thai style curry I made about a week ago, with my first harvest of french beans! Very proud of what i have grown this year, the courgettes are doing very well (like normal!) and the french beans, despite being my first attempt at growing them, have blossomed! Mum really liked this recipe- it's a bit of a mish mash of ingredients but together the flavours and textures work really well. I have used Sainsburys massaman paste, but you are welcome to try any other brand.
Massaman Quorn and Vegetable curry (serves 3-4)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 red onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed or finely chopped
Large Handful fresh coriander, roughly chopped (plus extra for garnish)
