Heart Warming [Vegan & Dairy-Free] Coconut Curry Comfort!

Its Monday.  Its sunny and beautiful, but its COLD!  And I'm craving something heart-warming and comforting with a hint of spice.  Are you with me? I put vegan & dairy-free in brackets because for non-vegans (like myself) there is a certain connotation to vegan food that equates to it sucking...In more polite terms, "lacking in flavour," "unsatisfying." Whereas this dish is none of the above, but rather creamy, warming, comforting and satisfying!  And did I mention its SUPER EASY?

Here's your cold-weather meal everyone!  And for those of you listening to CKWR LIVE RIGHT NOW as I chat with Midday With RJ's  own Randy Johnston, here's the recipe as promised!
Happy Monday everyone!!

Heart Warming Coconut Curry

  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Green Peas
  • Curry Powder (you decide how much depending on your spice preference)
  • Can of coconut milk
  • Salt (not much, you can always add more later)
What do I do?
  1. Preheat oven to 300'F
  2. Combine all ingredients in an oven-safe and stove top-safe dish with a lid.  (Corning ware or other such dishes)
  3. Add enough water to just skim the top of the vegetables and loosely stir mixture.
  4. Bring to a boil on med/hi heat (not too hot, these dishes don't do well on MAX) 
  5. Immediately place covered dish on middle rack of oven and bake for approximately an hour.
  6. Remove from oven, stir, and let sit uncovered for at least 5 min to settle.
  7. Serve on its own or over rice.
Did I mention it was simple?
