Curried Bean Pilaf


 I am a sucker for one-pot meals. They are usually quick and easy recipes that taste great. This is a complete dish and is the star of the dinner show. Yes, you can serve it with some meat or a nice green salad too. The plus? It is a Vegan Recipe and delicious!

Delicious Rating: For a spicier meal, add more curry paste or powder. The first time around I used brown rice and since brown rice cooks a lot longer, the meal was too mushy. The second time around I used white rice and it turned out great. There is a great balance between hot from the curry, sweet from the raisins, and the perfect crunch from the pecans. Overall, it is a good meal and I plan on cooking it again!
