Soy and vegetable curry

If you like curry you have to try this recipe. We developed it with my hubby and it’s really very good. The flavors are so good, you’ll feel full and still scrap the sauce off the plate! 

The frozen vegan soy (non GMO) chunks i used are from a brand called Vegetarian Butcher – from those living in Cyprus you can find it in Foodsaver Stores!

Also, i used frozen peas, soy beans and aubergines from Ardo –  again from Foodsaver’s.
