Vegetarian Korma

I’m not exactly sure what the word Korma translates into but I’m pretty sure it might mean deliciously creamy sauce. The great thing about this dish is it’s very versatile. You can make it as it is or add chicken, beef or lamb to it. You can also add other vegetables if you would like. Cauliflower and zucchini both work great.

I think I’m the only one in my family that could eat soup no matter what the weather was like. Today I made this quick version of my grandmother’s Portuguese Kale Soup. My grandmother would say that this is not “real”  kale soup because I didn’t spend the day slowly cooking […] read more
