Don't Worry, Eat Curry

It’s that time of year for all the soups, stews & curries. Since we're in the middle of winter it seems only fitting to have a nice warm, comforting curry!

This is a 'must try' if you're a fan of curry. It is jam packed with flavor! The coconut milk & oil mixed with the curry paste, asparagus & carrot is a combination I’ve never tried, but is so delicious.

I would have never thought that the ingredients in this would pair so nicely together, but it all works so well! That's the true beauty of trying new & different recipes, you may just find one that you absolutely love, but would have never thought to try!

This is a light curry, best served over some quinoa or rice, but can also be enjoyed on its own.
