Last week's produce box had fewer "unfamiliar" food friends in it, so much of the cooking was life as usual. There were some fantastic heirloom tomatoes, including a giant yellow one. Mmm. I used that one on a delish egg salad sandwich on homemade oatmeal bread. And the pineapple made it's way into several different meals. Also fabulous. But I was a little perplexed about what to do with the cabbage. I'm not a huge cabbage fan and Paul down right dislikes it. So, I was scouring the cookbooks for some cabbage recipes. There was one that I found that was intriguing. Potato vegetable curry. We got two gorgeous purple potatoes, and it just needed some sweet potatoes and coconut milk. So, tonight I finally got the rest of the ingredients and made the curry tonight. Mostly a success. It definitely needed more coconut milk for the amount of vegetables that were in it and I need to figure out how to make it spicier next time. But the potatoes were delicious and the sweet potato in the curry was amazing... I definitely will try it again, but with more coconut milk and maybe some red pepper flakes or a jalepeno. Any suggestions?
