I have taken up a challenge for Lent, I will follow a vegan diet!! I am so excited for these 40 days, there are so many recipes I would like to try and explore more with food I rarely cook. It is currently day 3 and it has been great! This curry was delicious, very easy to make and I have leftovers almost for a week!!
