This is the least intellectual thing you will read this week and I am sorry. Personally, this has been an amazingly rough week for me. But then we have the news. Anthony Weiner. Ariel Castro. Beyonce’s new haircut! It’s been chaos. Chaos! So I went back to where the internet made sense: cute videos of cats doin’ stuff. And you need to watch this. Really, you do.
This is my favorite thing to cook.
(optional: sour cream, hot sauce)
If I am going all in, this is what I do… I sauté some onions in olive oil. I boil a bunch of carrots (and potatoes, zucchini, whatever similar veggies that appeal to me that day) with bullion until they are tender. Then I add some of the onions (not all) and blend they are tender — basically a mush. I put this back in a pot and add the rest of the onions, curry (to taste) and heat. I serve with Morningstar Farms crumbles, sour cream and hot sauce. My personal favorite is Pete’s but it works with any.
And now you have what I eat all the time. PS. I have lost more than 20 lbs by eating this a lot… This can be vegan if you want that. The Morningstar Farms stuff has gluten (I think it needs protein but tofu would also work). Every Sunday I make a big batch and use it as a base for what I eat for lunch for the week. I have to admit that I hate eating but this is the one recipe that I like.
Sometimes I do a trimmed down version where I just boil some carrots in soup and add the curry.
