This is a nice, simple and quick curry that we have started to make a bit – it’s a variation on a coconut cream-and tomato based curry – that has neither ingredient!
This one can also be made vegetarian, just add carrot, Kumara, potato and/or parsnips instead of meat. It’s also good with other stew-type vegetables – like tomatoes, or green, canellini, or kidney beans. Though it’s best not to try it with broccoli or zucchini. Shudder. This can be made quite hot, but we tend to keep it mild for the kids. This recipe has had some success on the children-will-eat front.
It should take about 1/2- 3/4 of an hour to put together. Don’t forget to have with rice or thick fresh bread.

This is a variation on a recipe my grandma used to make. I’ve had to adapt it to our current diet restrictions, as the original french-onion spices are a no-no in our now onion-free house. This is also an easy one to make gluten-free, and I have also on occasion made it dairy free too. When pressed and in the off-season, I also use canned peaches – but I’m careful with the syrup as it can be so sweet as to overpower this dish. This is a simple dish and I often have fun mixing up the spices and trying different combinations, but it’s still at its best as a no-fuss simple homage to great produce.

This is a recipe I do with and without dairy, depending on what’s in the cupboard. It’s a lovely simple white sauce base that goes well with most green vegetables (think peas, green beans, broad beans, and asparagus – though not all at once!). This recipe will be the dairy-free version, as there are countless recipes to do it the other way. This recipe very popular with my DH.
