One of my goals this year was to increase the number of meatless meals that I serve each week. I did this to save money, add more veggies to my meals and hopefully reduce time spent in the kitchen.
One of my favorite easy weeknight meals is a curry. Many folks shy away from curry thinking it might be too spicy for the family. But since you control the spice, you can make it however you’d like. Plus you have the ability to toss in any veggie (or protein) that you may have handy. One of my family’s favorites is my Butternut & Chickpea Curry. I can have this tasty dish ready in about the same amount of time it takes to cook my RiceSelect Jasmati Rice!
I really love this one as it’s very easy on the budget as well. Most of the items I keep in my pantry. So to throw this together, I generally only need to grab the veggies and I am in business. Right now it’s even more budget friendly as we have a fantastic sale and offer that mean big savings on the RiceSelect you need for this recipe.
