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.

every night, I have this ritual where I scroll through the photos taken from the day on my phone and pick a favorite, posting it up on my stories with the hashtag #favoritepicoftheday. it’s a fun, sometimes therapeutic way to end and reflect on the day. as I was going through it tonight, the TV was on and I heard the news. ruth bader ginsburg passed away tonight. immediately, I felt sadness and a bit of worry. a worry of the implications politically of her passing. there’s so much at stake in this upcoming election and you all know I don’t get political on here very often, but seeing roma’s little smiley, silly face made me realize that if I’m not being a good role model and using this platform to make the world a better place for her, what kind of mother am I? so VOTE, VOTE, VOTE. 🇺🇸 and as the late RBG said, “real change, enduring change, happens one step at a time.” here’s my step. 💕 #rbg #ruthbaderginsburg ...
