Vegetarian Curry in a Flash

Vegetarian Curry in a Flash

Some days (or weeks or months) are just too crazy to spend hours in the kitchen each week. That’s why at Well Balanced we are always looking for simple meals that are just as quick as they are nutritious. Our newest recipe is brought to you by Coach Bella’s favorite store, Trader Joe’s. It calls for a few frozen items, some seasoning, and some tofu. The best part it is it requires minimal cooking. Just a few minutes in the microwave, a little sautĂ© action, and BOOM- a fast, delicious, and well balanced meal (or meals) is ready to be enjoyed.

Well Balanced Tip: if you use more than one package of the frozen rice and channa masala (like the recipe calls for), then you are likely to have enough food for a few people or few meals worth, However, if you are only in need of one meal then use half a bag of rice, 1/4-1/2 of a block of tofu, and one channa masala.
