    I made this yesterday in the slow cooker. I just threw everything in and cooked on high for 4-5 hours. It was delicious! I added a teaspoon of red curry paste for a bit more kick.

    I’ve never had any success getting my two kids to eat curry, mild or otherwise…. Until tonight! This was awesome, easy to spice up for the adults, and the kids scoffed it: I believe my 4 year olds words were “This is the most delicious dinner I’ve ever eaten !” Now that’s some praise!
    Stoked to have found a great kid friendly veggie curry – even the vegans in our extended family are going to love this!

    My toddler loves this curry! Just wondering would it be suitable for an 8 month old baby?
