Indian Coconut Curried Vegetables

Healthy veggies simmered in a simple coconut milk curry

If you think you don't like to eat your vegetables, you might just change your mind when you discover these simple and healthy vegetables simmered in a simple coconut milk curry. Just about any veggies will do - try adding spinach to get your greens, or baby corn for a change. These veggies have a bit of extra sauce, so you can serve them over rice, noodles, or try them with a whole grain such as millet or quinoa for a complete vegetarian dinner.

Needs more flavour, Guest Michelle

This was OK, but if I make it again I will probably double up on the spices, it it VERY mild.
