Do you know how simple it is to make your Curry? Well my friends here is one Easy Healthy Dinner Recipe Idea that you can get done in minutes without blowing your budget. Making your own Curry is that easy, and it can set you up for multiple meals throughout the week. Add this one to your weekly schedule.
Its Gluten Free and one of the mid week go to’s that make your life a whole lot easier. It can also be included for your meal prep schedule. Make it in bulk and then cook off your favorite protein! This recipe came about from Allen in Essex, wanting to know how to use Vermicelli rice noodles in a simple Asian healthy recipe. It does not get much easier than making the sauce and then adding everything in.
Making the sauce alone is a great learning curve, as you realise how simple it is. Just sweat off some fundamental asian ingredients and a paste with coconut milk and done! From there you can either store it or make it again with ease and have it with a variety of dishes.
