Meatless Monday Recipe-No Oil Spicy Coconut Curry
No Oil Spicy Coconut Curry
Vegan; Gluten Free; 30 minutes

2 teaspoons cumin

Stir in the coconut yogurt, hemp milk, curry paste, and simmer till the sauce becomes slightly thick. I added some crushed Thai peppers to give an extra kick, fresh cilantro and lime...
