This Green Thai Curry is one of my go-to dishes for cold dreary days. Full of chickpeas, green beans, sweet potato, and carrots, this cozy dish is warm and comforting, and it’s the perfect meal to brighten dark days.
Curry is one of my all-time favorite cold weather dishes. Any type of vegetable curry will do – pumpkin curry, Thai red curry, mango tempeh curry – you name it, I’ll cook it and eat it! The weather is starting to warm up here in New Jersey, so curry season is almost over, but I think there’s enough of a chill in the air to make just one more!
