Happy Monday, world! How was your weekend? Last week I made this delicious curry dish that I’ve been waiting to share with you until today, and now I finally can! I hope you guys like it as much as we did. The original recipe hails from Better Homes and Gardens. I don’t even know how I ended up on their site but they do have some wonderful recipes. It is billed as a side dish, but I served it as a main dish with black quinoa as a side. It was quite good.
I did alter this recipe quite a bit. Truthfully, I didn’t stick to the measurements. I’m not exactly sure how much that affected the overall flavor, but we loved it. Here’s the original recipe, from Better Homes and Gardens!
- 3 C cauliflower florets (I didn’t measure the cauliflower — just used a whole head!)
- 1 15 oz can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained (I used boxed garbanzo beans from Whole Foods — I don’t recall the precise measurement but it’s not 15 oz)
- 1 C frozen cut green beans
- 1 C sliced carrot (I used 3 medium sized carrots)
- 1/2 C chopped onion (I used one medium onion)
- 1 14 oz can vegetable broth
- 2 tsp curry powder
- 1 14 oz can light coconut milk
- 1/4 C shredded fresh basil leaves
In a slower cooker, combine cauliflower, garbanzo beans, green beans, carrot, and onion. Stir in broth and curry powder.
Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours, or high for 2-3 hours. Stir in coconut milk and basil. Makes 4-6 servings (unless you don’t measure like I did, and you end up with a giant crock-pot full!).
Today was yoga day! Boy did I need it. It felt amazing to stretch my legs and back — calves and hips especially.
You may notice that my hair is STRAIGHT in this picture! Boo-yah! I got my hairs did yesterday by my friend who is a master straightener and hair artiste! It won’t be like this for long but while it is, I get the short-lived pleasure of being able to run my fingers through my hair. If you have curly hair, you know what I’m talking about.
Before I go, there is ONE DAY and NINE HOURS left to enter my Motivate Wrap giveaway! Get in there, folks! If you haven’t already entered to win, do it now!! What are you waiting for?!
That’s all, my loves. I hope you had a glorious weekend, and a great Monday so far. See you tomorrow!

Yep, I did just quote Kurt Cobain. What can I say? Amazingness.
What’s one of your all-time favorite bands or musical influences?
