“Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like”
Because I love food so much, I post my meals on my Instagram; and so many people wanted the recipe to my kheema dinner from the other day. So this post is doing exactly that; sharing with you my new recipe!
This recipe is of course a vegan take on the Indian classic- What is Kheema? well it a curry dish usually made with mince but I switched that for soy chunks- because I did not have soy mince. You could totally change the soy to lentils also. It is super versatile! And who doesn’t love a good curry recipe to try out!
The photo shows my Kheema mixed with the Bombay veggies- It is super easy to make and does not take up to much time so you’ll be enjoying it within minutes! Great for Lunch or Dinner! Yum.
