Veggie Curry

With finals time comes lots of stress and with all that stress I don't have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen. This fast easy curry is the perfect pick me up meal when I only have a few minutes to spare. You throw this over some rice or couscous and you have a tasty quick meal that will keep you going through no matter what life throws at you. I will be posting more often after all these tests and papers are over but until then if you have any good ideas for finals food let me know!
Serves 5

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves crushed garlic
2 1/2 tablespoons curry powder
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 cube vegetable bouillon
1 (10 ounce) package frozen mixed vegetables
1 1/2 cups water
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  • In a large saucepan over medium-high, heat oil and saute onion, and garlic until golden. Stir in curry powder and tomato paste, cook 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Stir in tomatoes, vegetable bouillon cube, mixed vegetables, water, salt and pepper to taste. Cook approximately 30 minutes until vegetables are well done (not crunchy). Sprinkle with fresh cilantro prior to serving.
