Muffin Meals

No, these meals won't be muffins but Muffin is one of my nicknames. Besides, it sounds cute! After viewing the Vegan Lunchbox site, religiously, my Husband wants me to post my own menu. I will try to post one meal each day. I hope I inspire people to have creative and healthy home cooked meals. I think that even if you aren't a vegetarian, you'll like the meals I present. I do feature dairy products and eggs in my food from time to time, but will try my best to present vegan dishes as well.

Indian Food - Palak and Aloo Curries - VEGAN

Well, after getting emails I will attempt to resurrect this blog. I may only be able to blog once a week however. My 3 year old daughter is homeschooling, and my one year old (yes its been a year already!) is growing well and fast!

Tonight we had something very colorful and I decided to share this. First we had Palak Paneer, my vegetarian style. Instead of Paneer which is Goat Milk Cheese, I use Tofu chunks.

The process is very simple really, I use a half a block of tofu, and fry it up until its firm. I then add curry powder, paprika, and Garam Masala to taste. Frozen chopped spinach is added next, approximately 12-16 ounces. You can add some coconut milk as well if you'd like. Salt to taste

The other curry we had was an Aloo Curry. This recipe is a tad more complicated, but just as simple. You will need:

1 half Cauliflower head, chopped
1 can chopped tomatoes
1 can Coconut Milk
1/2 tsp turmeric
paprika to taste
curry to taste
salt to taste

Saute and steam the cauliflower. Add the turmeric, and the curry powder and paprika to taste. Throw in the chopped tomatoes, and then boil that until the cauliflower is soft enough for you. Pour in the coconut milk and then salt to taste.

And that is it!

Serve over brown rice.
