Lazy Sweet Potato & Curry Recipe [Vegetarian]

Monday, August 22, 2011

When I'm at work all day, the last thing I want to do is work at making a good meal for dinner. This quick and easy sweet potato & curry recipe uses just a few packaged foods and a lot of taste bud satisfaction.

This recipe feeds two people with enough for leftovers.
All ingredients are optional; if you canít stand a certain vegetable, sub in something else.
Try a health food or Asian store if your local supermarket doesn't carry certain products.

Lazy Sweet Potato & Curry Recipe


1 sweet potato
1 parsnip
1 turnip
1 onion

1/2 pkg frozen Quorn Chikín Tenders
OR seitan or tempeh

1 box S & B Golden Curry Sauce Mix

1 package brown rice Ė Boil-in-a-Bag brown rice or Minnesota Wild Rice if you donít want to wait 40 years

Shoyu (soy sauce)
2 tbs Sesame or olive oil

Curry powder
White pepper


Chop all veggies into bite-sized pieces.
Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a medium-sized skillet.
Add 1/2 pkg (or more) frozen Quorn Chikín Tenders OR seitan OR tempeh to skillet.
Add veggies to skillet.

Stir frequently while cooking.

In another pot, start the rice cooking per directions.

When tenders and veggies are about halfway done, mix in soy sauce and spices to taste.

Keep stirring frequently. Remove from heat when veggies are done to your satisfaction. You'll find the fake chicken cooks faster than real chicken, even when frozen.

In still another pot, prepare curry sauce per directions. If youíre using a mix, this doesnít take long at all but will require constant stirring, so I usually wait until near the end and make my husband do it.

Mix everything on your plate, or add the curry sauce directly to the veggie pan.

Consume at will.

    I'm really impressed with Quorn. That brand and Boca are my top favorites for the frozen food section.
Thanks for reading!

    Hmm. I've read this a couple times, and it doesn't actually say gluten-free, but it doesn't say it's not, either:'n

I only add the Quorn so I can get some protein, but if you add even more veggies in place of it, you'll be filled up just fine.

    Is "quorn" gluten free? I know I can't use tempeh or seitan.....
Recipe sounds great and easy. Thanks.
