Vegetable Curry

This easy peasy vegetable curry is another recipe I tried last week from my new cookbook, The Official Downton Abbey Cookbook. It's a really simple recipe, and a great way to pack a ton of veggies into one meal. It's also perfect if you have extra veggies that you don't want to go to waste. Any variety of vegetable can be used here.

I decided to use carrots, parsnips, and broccoli in addition to the onions, cucumbers, and apples that the recipe calls for.

This recipe is essentially chopping and combining the ingredients. Nothing too fancy. It calls for curry powder and ground ginger as the primary seasonings.

The final product is full of flavor and has that classic curry taste. I made it mild, because my husband doesn't like spicy food, but I think adding some spice would make this even better! So here's the recipe. Serve it up with some rice or quinoa and dinner is good to go!
