Let the crock pot do all the work for you with this vegan slow cooker curry. You can come home and enjoy a hot, delicious, healthy meal!
This slow cooker curry is just what I needed to get my meal prep back on track! It’s fallen by the wayside this weekend… For dinner on Sunday night I had leftover mac and cheese, popcorn and goldfish crackers. I have been totally focused on redecorating the main level of our house. That makes it sound like our house has so many levels when I say it like that; main level. It doesn’t–our house is a tiny little 1940’s cape cod and I love it. There’s just the main level, the upstairs (which is really considered a half story because it has all those cute little dormer windows and angled ceilings) and then the creepy, crawly dungeony basement. Our previous house was 5 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and was waaaaay too much space for just the two of us. Now that we’ve introduced a cute little toddler into the mix, I can see the argument for a larger house, but honestly I wouldn’t trade this little house for anything. Okay, maybe I’d trade it for 1 million dollars, but you get my point.
I love our little house. I love it’s coziness and warm, homey feel. Although up until this past weekend, it really didn’t feel like ours. The walls were painted all different colors, which was fine; they were actually some pretty good colors. But I have been longing for a gray living room. And a gray kitchen. And a gray dining room. Yes, this weekend I painted all three rooms of our main level a cool light gray. And it’s glorious! The shade might even be called glorious gray, who knows. Edit: I do know; it’s called Snowglory! What are the odds? Maybe I should be a paint color namer instead of a food blogger?
My parents had a leftover 5 gallon bucket of paint that they generously gifted me and it was GAME ON after that. Unfortunately, I got a little too excited and did not take any before pictures. Woops! But once it’s complete I’ll show you the after! I am still in the decorating phase. You know the phase when you scour Pinterest for hours looking for rustic chic reclaimed barnwood sconces and peruse Etsy endlessly wondering where people find the time and inspiration for all these beautiful projects. Needless to say, there will still be no time for meal prep this week. So I bought stuff for sandwiches and spent 5 minutes total making this curry last night, and we are set!
Keep in mind that you can really use whatever veggies you like in this meal. Just make sure they’re cut up into bite size pieces so they cook evenly!
Love curry?! Yeah, me too! I love it so much that I want to make sure you check out my tasty (and super easy) Tomato Coconut Curried Cod, Curried Corn Chowder and Curried Squash Soup.Print
