Lazy Yellow Vegetable Curry

Posted on: September 22, 2010

Honestly, I feel bad even calling this a recipe since it literally is just things being thrown together with a pre-made sauce, but it was so good I just have to share it.

Lately, I have been getting into Indian and Thai food. I decided to buy a curry sauce at the store to see if I could come up with something at home rather then spend the money to go out. I ended up finding a Thai yellow curry sauce at Stop & Shop and went to town.

Here’s what I had to work with . . .

I literally threw together whatever I had. Originally I just planned to use the pepper, onion and eggplant I just bought, but I decided to look in the freezer to see if I can bulk up the life force a bit. I ended up finding multi colored pepper strips and brussels sprouts that I knew had a small chance of ever being used. I also dug out 2 potatoes from the fridge for some density. A side note though, before I put them in the pan with everything else, I poked some holes in them with a fork and microwaved them for a few minutes just to soften them up enough so they wouldn’t end up being undercooked and it worked like a charm.

After it all went in the pan, I kept it at medium heat until everything started marrying together. I threw a little sea salt in there so the veggies could sweat out one last time. I added the curry sauce and then just let it simmer with a lid on until all the veggies were cooked through and a mushy parade of semi-spicy goodness unveiled.

I served it over some pasta although rice might have fit the bill better. Honestly, it would have been good just by itself! I know it doesn’t look amazing, but I promise it is.

As always I made sure I put some in plastic containers for pre-made meals AND I ended up freezing a good amount of it for a rainy day.

Whats your go to ‘throw everything in the pot’ sauce?

I’m a strict recipe follower (slowly starting to be more creative but it’s a work in progress) so I have no random foodie creations.. but that actually does look really good! Sometimes the most random things thrown together taste the absolute best.

I love randomly throwing stuff together like this! It doesnt always turn out, but for the most part I wind up with a pot full of deliciousness! πŸ™‚

I also really love yellow curry. Thanks for reminding me that I NEED to buy some!

That’s my kind of cooking though! πŸ˜€ I love just tossing things together and it comes out tasting good.

I tried Indian food for the first time about a month ago and LOVED the yellow curry dishes. I might have to try out your recipe ASAP! πŸ™‚

I wanted to send you a personal note to thank you for your kind words on my blog yesterday.

Your advice was sound…and although I did eat too much last night, I also made a conscious effort to really FEEL my feelings. It’s a HUGE start in the right direction…and I thank you for showing me a great example on how to do it better.

Anyway, thank you again for reading and commenting. I very much appreciate it.
