Spring Fling Curry!

On an average day I wake up at either 4am or 7am. Head to work, sit at a desk, yell at train clients, teach some yoga or cross training, possibly get in a run or workout of my own, head home (a whole ten minute commute!!!) and scramble to make dinner, do laundry and all of life's other little tasks before tucking into bed. How are earth do parents do all this and more?? When you have a child do they give you secret pills that add 4 hours to each day? There are not enough hours in the day!!!
That being said I have become quite proficient in meals that can be cooked in 15 minutes. This is a nutritious, delicious and vegan FAST meal idea. As a little added bonus it uses seasonal spring produce that is so yummy right now!

Thanks to a couple of pre-packaged items, you can whip this meal up in about 15 mins and have enough left overs for a couple of lunches! You could easily do this without pre-packaged items but some nights you are just too lazy...

1 TBS Coconut Oil
1/4 sweet onion
1 clove garlic
1 Medium bunch Bok Choy, chopped separating thick stalks from green's
5-6 Asparagus Spears, chopped
1 Jar of curry sauce (some will not be vegan, cooks preference :) )
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
Whole Grain 90 sec Rice

1. Saute onion and garlic in coconut oil until onion starts to tenderize. Add bok choy stalks and asparagus, cover and cook for about 5 mins.
2. Add bok choy greens, black beans and curry sauce. Cook for about 5 mins.
3.Cook 90 second rice in microwave

The picture really doesn't do this curry justice but believe me for 15 minutes of cooking it was divine!


  1. And all this time I thought you were just encouraging us! Love the recipe. Where did you buy the curry sauce?

  2. It was either Safeway or Rosaurs... I want to say the huckleberrys section in Rosaurs... And yes for great clients like you and Rob the right word would be encourage... Haha


Always excited to hear your thoughts or have you share ideas!
