This ridiculously easy dish came from a beautiful friend of mine who is very into health and wellness. When I dropped in to visit her on the way to the supermarket one weekend, bemoaning the fact that I did not feel like cooking, she suggested a curry and I laughed and said no way, I definitely didn’t feel like making a curry from scratch!

She promised me it was simple and shared the recipe with me, and it looked so easy and delicious that I did make it that night – it was as simple as she promised and so good I went for seconds (without feeling guilty because I knew how wholesome the ingredients were). It's not exactly a curry as such, more of a flavorful and fun vegetarian dish. I might also mention it was a hit with my six year old too – the addition of the peanut butter made it an easy sell.
