Vegetable Curry

Vegetable Curry is a nutritious, easy and incredibly delicious dish to make any time. For this recipe we used our North African curry blend, Ras El Hanout, although most curry blends can be used as a substitute. Ras El Hanout is a wonderfully warm blend of over a dozen spices like cardamom, fenugreek, turmeric, coriander, ginger, and cumin, that are nicely balanced with sweet notes from cinnamon, nutmeg, and other spices.

Ras El Hanout means “top shelf”, the literal translation is “head of shop”, and according to Moroccan spice dealers it was originally created out of all the best spices in their shop. It has been reported that some versions had up to 50 spices in the mix. VSpicery’s Ras El Hanout has quite a few spices, but we found a way to create this beautiful curry flavor and keep the spice count well under 50.

We added curry several times throughout this recipe, adding in small amounts until it smelled just right so there is no exact measurement. If you have a chance to try this recipe, let us know in the comments below.
