This is the start of me trying to return to meatless Mondays. I might have cheated a little and made a chicken kabob for Chris, but getting him to eat vegan is like trying to feed Ellie green baby food. It just doesn’t work. I figure if I go meatless a few nights a week, it’ll even out. I find the trick to enjoying a vegan dinner is to have a lot of variety and a lot of color on the plate. I served this indian stew with spinach rice and salted heirloom tomatoes, and it was amazing.
This is an easy chicken curry that can be whipped up in the time it takes you to cook up some rice. If you can’t get your hands on Ajvar, just use a couple tablespoons of tomato paste and some dashes of hot sauce. I was out of jasmine rice so I served this curry with wild rice tonight. It was really good!
Chicken Tikka Masala is a great week night dinner because it is good with tons of veggies and cooks up really quickly. To make it lower calorie, just switch the heavy cream for diet cream. To lower the cost of the ingredients, use chicken thighs instead of breasts, and use frozen veggies instead of fresh!
