Curried Rainbow Vegetable Skillet

I'm non a huge fan of spring.  It is mostly my to the lowest degree favorite flavor , at to the lowest degree until it is the middle of August hits in addition to I'm cursing summertime for beingness also damn hot.  In the Pacific Northwest , saltation is mostly a 4 calendar month long tease that wintertime is over.  For us , it has been the rainiest flavor ever.  Literally , it was the rainiest wintertime in addition to saltation on tape this final year.  Welcome to globe Ben , it rains a lot here!




The 1 reprieve nosotros brand it the saltation is that roughly improve character in addition to improve priced attain starts showing upwards inwards the grocery store.  At my local grocery shop I constitute asparagus for $1.89 per pound.  Chyah!  Last nighttime I felt similar having lighter dinner amongst lots of veggies , in addition to then inwards went my asparagus along amongst roughly other vivid veggies.

I ever convey lentils cooked in addition to frozen inwards the freezer to chop-chop thaw in addition to add together to meals similar this , but experience gratis to larn out out this component division or to purpose roughly other cooked edible bean y'all like.  I also convey a homemade (thanks mom) tater handbag that cooks my potatoes inwards the microwave inside minutes.  The cooking fourth dimension for lentils in addition to tater are hence non included inwards my guess below.

Curried Rainbow Vegetable Skillet
Time: 10 infinitesimal prep , xv infinitesimal saute
Servings: two principal servings or 4 side servings

Ingredients:
    Saute:
        1/2 scarlet onion , diced
        1 pocket-size scarlet bell pepper , diced
        1/2 bunch asparagus , bottom edges trimmed in addition to 1/2 " sliced on the bias
    Pre-cooked ingredients to add:
        1 medium sweetness tater , cooked , peeled , in addition to cubed
        1 loving cup cooked brownish lentils
    Quick Curry Sauce:
        3/4 loving cup plant-based milk , ideally unsweetened
        1 Tbsp almond butter , whatever nut/seed butter could work... perchance non PB , but y'all attain you
        1 Tbsp curry pulverization , I used a Caribbean Area Curry spice mix
        tabular array salt , to taste

Instructions:
1.)  Prep all ingredients.  In a large skillet over medium-high oestrus dry out saute the scarlet onion , bell pepper , in addition to asparagus , adding solely pocket-size amounts of H2O every bit needed to preclude the vegetables from burning in addition to sticking to the pan.
2.)  In a pocket-size bowl mix together the curry sauce ingredients.  Turn oestrus downwardly to medium-low in addition to add together the sweetness tater , lentils , in addition to curry sauce.  Continue to create in addition to toss ingredients until the sauce has thickened in addition to coated the vegetables.

's Notes:
Like I said higher upwards the recipe , I ever convey lentils prepped inwards the freezer , but if y'all don't in addition to require to brand this RIGHT NOW , here is a quick tutorial on how to create lentils on the stovetop.  If y'all convey an electrical pressure level cooker: 1 loving cup dried lentils , two cups H2O , high pressure level for half-dozen minutes , natural pressure level publish , drain whatever excess water

  The sweetness potatoes I used are the ones amongst a white/cream colored flesh , non orangish similar a yam.   I only throw mine into a tater handbag in addition to microwave it for 8 minutes.  My mom made me 1 for Christmas from this designing I believe.  I know roughly people convey a work amongst microwaving their nutrient , but inwards my heed , I intend it is improve to survive able to move a cooked tater inwards my rima oris relatively chop-chop than to plough to snacking on other unhealthy items (ahem... chips in addition to crackers are my weakness).  Alternatively , y'all tin bake ahead of fourth dimension or steam your tater inwards a pressure level cooker.

I constitute that this was plenty hearty plenty for a principal repast , but if you'd similar y'all tin double the curry sauce in addition to serve over brownish rice or your favorite whole grain.  Topping amongst cilantro would belike survive pretty tasty too.  I only didn't convey whatever on hand.
