Jamaican black bean curry makes a great vegan entree, or even delicious side dish for Meatless Monday.
Black Bean Curry
by Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime
This curry is something I made to go with my Mojito Chicken as a side dish. I wanted some beans with Jamaican flavoring but didn’t want to do my usual rice & peas recipe. This is actually quite good and not too spicy if you don’t add the “hab” (habanero) sauce. I think it would work out great for a get-together where those who eat meat can have the chicken, and those who do not can have the curry and everyone can have a little curry anyway (on the side). I like a dinner I can put together that doesn’t leave me scratching my head for other ding options for guests.
This cooks up rather fast too, so it is quite an easy meal. I am posting it today for Meatless Monday, so if you like making those dinner options, this is yet another choice for you. Enjoy!
