What’s your favorite quick, easy, and healthy recipe?


I really like to make curry, it's super easy to make and though it isn't the healthiest it's a lot healthier than other foods people eat.
Here it is:

you will need
a frying pan/wok
some cooking oil
curry masala
ginger
galangal (Thai ginger)
4-6 green onions
some squash/zucchini
carrots
mushrooms
tofu, tempeh or meat substitute
or what ever veggies you like

slice green onions and place into oiled pan
cook until close to being browned
add sliced squash, carrots, mushrooms and meat substitute
let cook until soft
add about a tablespoon of diced galangal and ginger
stir in 2 tsp of garam masala and 1/2 cup water
let water boil and thicken into sauce
ready to serve!

can be served with/without rice

I usually like to add some premade Thai curry sauce to make it spicier (I am a spice fiend!)

hahaha i love curry! i like how you changed up the traditional recipe style of curry chicken or goat to making curry veggies and tofu.....but don't you find thai curry a little sweet? they tend to use coconut milk, so i usually go for the malay or indian curry :)

Thai curry is too sweet for me, but the pre-made sauce I use is sans coconut milk. I looove Indian curry.
I have started to add gobs and gobs of chili powder, and I do add yoghurt to thicken up my sauce.
