Almost Vegan Dinner

Mucho’s Vegan Curry

Ever wondered what to cook when you invite a vegan friend to a dinner party full of meat eaters?

My first thought was “vegan for everyone”.  But the thought of being over imposing was unbearable. With that said, I thought “ two separate dishes”… but prep, dish washing , and dealing with my toddler considered was already enough for my knackered brain.

I had 5 guests including 1 vegan and one wannabe pescetarian (me!). So I decided to order a range of recipes from my Mucho App and decide after: 2 vegan, 1 Veggie and 2 healthy pescetarian was my order. Once I had all the ingredients delivered I realised I could just combine a couple of recipes and tada! the Vegan Curry with fish was born. Simple run of thumb: cook a vegan version of your final dish first and the just top it up, PERFECT!

I cooked the Vegan Curry recipe in the app, added the pan fried tofu squares the veggie recipe, and once the curry was ready, I set the vegan option aside and steamed the pieces of fish for another 10 minutes inside the curry pot.

I drizzled lime, and served everything with white basmati rice topped it with coriander, cashews & pumping seeds.

I had a bit of leftover frozen chilli and a couple of spicy food nutters on the table, so I also steamed the chilli for 2 minutes and served it with Mirin.

It was a huge success! Everyone enjoyed their meal and the feeling that all of us were eating out of the same dish was freaking awesome 🙂  What is best, I used what I had at home, and no double washing.

*Woomly Note: To all those looking to enhance fertility both vegan and fish curry would be a perfect addition to your diet, mixe it up with Fertility Yoga classes for better results.

On a pan using medium/high heat, cook the thin slices of Halloumi cheese. When cooked place it on a bed of rocket lettuce.
