Compelling Curry

The Chef: Jenny

The Menu: A stop-you-in-your-tracks amazing curry. Jenny was out of the office last week on vacation, and we certainly missed her dependable Monday curry. Today's was an extraordinary melding of butternut squash, garbanzo beans, coconut milk, and basil. As if the absolutely incredible main weren't enough, she also made perfumed rice—aka very aromatic rice simmered with spices—and a delicious simple salad of greens, tomatoes, and chopped pistachios.

The Goods: It's great to have the office back at full capacity and in full swing this week, and this meal was just what we needed to start out right. Of course, there's a thick blanket of fog outside, so having a scrumptious, colorful meal inside was a great break from the bleak outlook of the city.

I don't get it. What's the point of posting food pictures without the recipes? How are you going to get more people to go vegan if they can't learn how to make the food? VeganYumYum is the only vegan site that is worth visiting. You could learn something from her.
