I will have to get pics later since I'm doing this a couple weeks since I made this but I'm due to make it again soon.
Pumkin or similar squash
I bake a pumpkin, acorn squash or butternut squash & let it cool & then peel off the skin, scoop out the seeds & chop it into cubes. In a large pan I pour in a can or two of light coconut milk & add curry to taste, any curry will work, then I throw in the squash until heated through. As a soup I usually add a little stock to thin it out a bit. Serve with Rice, Noodles, Flatbread, ...
This recipe is super versatile, you can add tons of other ingredients, Chicken, Tofu, Fish, Shrimp, Chickpeas, Lentils, Cilantro, Chiles, Peas, Asparagus, Beans, Bell Peppers, ...
You can also use canned pumpkin for a nice smooth sauce and of course it's faster. ;-)
Chuka Soba noodles or Spaghetti
Shredded Cabbage, carrots, celery and onion or a precut bag of coleslaw
Any other veggies, meat or tofu you want to add
Crunchy noodles &/or nuts(I like almonds or cashews)
Cook the noodles, drain, then add a couple tablespoons of oil in the bottom of a big skillet or stir fry pan and throw in the noodles and as much as you want of the veggies and soy sauce.Top with some sliced almonds or other typing of your choice.
This recipe is very versatile, you can use just about any veggies and meat you like and there are plenty of other sauces you can use for flavor, even just garlic and a some fresh cilantro is delish.
Add any veggies and proteins you like: potato, peas, carrot, chickpeas, chicken, tofu, fish, onion, cauliflower, bell pepper, lentils, cilantro, lime, coconut, cashews, ...
(Saag is a yogurt or cream curry with lots of Spinach)
Basmati or Jasmine Rice
Biryani is a rice curry where you add the curry and other ingredients right into the rice. My husbands favorite is a coconut cashew with golden raisins but there are as many variations as you can think of. I recommend going to an Indian restaurant for inspiration. :-)
Nothing is easier than a great stirfry! Put a couple tablespoons of oil in a wok or large pan and when it's hot throw in your veggies and anything else you want. It can be as simple as adding a bunch of garlic or soy sauce or you can buy or make up any number of sauces to add. Some of my favorites are, cabbage with garlic, any frozen veggie mix, and broccoli with soy sauce.
Totally Feels Like You are Cheating Ramen:
Lots of veggies and anything else you want.
(I also cook the ramen and then drain the noodles before adding the spice packet and then add veggies and such and sometimes add plain yogurt or sour cream to make it creamy.)
