You Must Try This Vegan Curry!


Sometimes it’s complicated to find a tasty homemade vegan recipe. I mean, let’s face it, how many times can you fry, bake, puree, and toast tofu?

However, there are always exceptions to every rule. I found this recipe and was eager to try it. I had many of the ingredients already on hand and only had to pick up a few at the grocery store. I even took numerous photos of my in-process preparation of the meal. Let’s go!

First, I had to heat up the coconut oil in the skillet. Easy breezy.


I’m reminded why I don’t buy onions often. OMG, my eyes watered so much when I was chopping them up.

Now the recipe called for non-sulfur dried apricots, but I found the sulfur kind at my local grocery store. I’m sure if you went to a health food store or another store like Sprouts or Whole Foods (maybe even Trader Joe’s), you can find the non-sulfur dried apricots. I mixed them with the onions, garlic, and sautéed them in the coconut oil:



Next, I added the curry powder to the mix and let all of the ingredients toast.


I rinsed the chickpeas/garbanzo beans. I had to rinse them for a short while to make sure they were nice and clean. Chickpeas have a ton of good stuff within to make them a staple in any meal, really. Check this out.


I chopped up the tofu (after squeezing the everloving life out of it). Along with the chickpeas, I added the tofu to the skillet.


Next, came the coconut milk. I used the Goya brand and mixed it in with the skillet full of great stuff.



After letting everything simmer for a few minutes, I then added the last ingredient, the spinach.


Make sure your spinach is thoroughly washed if you’re buying raw spinach. As much as I love raw foods, I don’t love worms or dirt.



I added bay leaves for an extra flavor. No, they’re not just leaves I picked up from the ground.


It looks disgusting but trust, it was hella bomb.

And finished product:


Now, my pictures aren’t the prettiest, but I think it helps to show how the results turn out in real time.

I linked the recipe above but in case you missed it, it’s here. Try it!
