Zucchini and Potato Curry

Use up those summer zucchinis and potatoes with this easy, meal prep friendly one pot curry with chickpeas and curry paste.

Zucchini and Potato Chickpea Curry

During the fall and winter months, I’m all about the curries. Red curries, green curries, spicy Indian curries – I love a warm, flavorful, fragrant bowl of curry when it’s chilly out!

But when it’s in the high 80s and sunny, the last thing I want is a curry. There was a little cold front that blew through here for a few days, and I took advantage of it by going to the farmer’s market with the intention of making a curry! Thus, I grabbed zucchinis and potatoes and knew I could make a simple curry with some coconut milk, chickpeas, and curry paste.

Zucchini and Potato Curry

Curries are so versatile, that’s what I love about them! Basically, just add in any vegetable or protein you have on hand and you’ll have a new, personalized curry every time! You could definitely add in some shredded chicken here, but I think a tofu would work very nicely and complement the consistency.

And if you’re looking for more curry ideas, here are a few.

tell me how everyone's doing on their thanksgiving prep - ready? haven't even started yet? I haven't bought a single thing yet! 😇😱🤡

the holidays are going to be very tough and emotional for many of us this year. we're not going to spend it with the loved ones we typically do to keep one another safe and even worse, some of us will miss family we've lost to the COVID virus. 💔⁣

something that always cheers me up is food. I've come to realize that one of the reasons it has this therapeutic effect on me is because it's a safe space for me to block out everything else and just enjoy the art of cooking. 🥄⁣

and I realize that this will not be helpful to everyone ("oh, ali, I can't just cook it all way!"), but if it does, try to get in the kitchen and cook (or bake!) something that brings you happiness. and if it does not and you're sad right now, that's okay too. it's okay to not feel okay. 🙏🏼 I wish I could help more, but in the meantime, my love, strength, and heart goes out to you. I'm thinking of you.⁣

but, IF food and cooking is cathartic for you too, I encourage you to make something new this year for Thanksgiving (or over whatever holiday you celebrate.) sometimes following steps in a new recipe keeps your brain focused on the task and you're able to let everything else wash away. at least that's how it is for me! I'm flipping through my cookbooks and sharing some of my favorite holiday-friendly recipes over on stories, like this one from #InspiralizedandBeyond! 📚⁣
