This simple, mild and delicious Mushroom & Capsicum Curry is one of my favourite nutritious weeknight dinners. Mushrooms and capsicum are simmered in a creamy tomato-based vegan sauce and makes a delightful addition to your meals. The curry is LCFH/keto compliant and works just as well for those who are not fussed about the carbs in their diet.
Creamy Vegan Curry Sauce makes the base of this comforting curry. The sauce is versatile and works wonderfully with an assortment of vegetables and tofu/paneer (vegetarian option).
The Mushroom & Capsicum Curry is so easy to make that you’ll want to add this in your meal planning for the week. I personally, look forward to incorporating curries as part of my meal plan a) I am Indian. Duh! I love curries.
- b) the convenience of making a hearty weeknight dinner is enticing.
- c) portioning out a few batches to last me for a couple of days is just so awesome!
I typically consume this curry with a side of Keto Friendly Spicy Cauliflower Roast, Egg Curry/Omelette. If you’re not on a low-carb lifestyle, this will be fantastic to devour with rice or breads of your choice.
