Though the title of this post may suggest an inconsequential dinner (curry…been there, done that), Ferry cooks Gabe and Franny revolutionized last night’s dinner from humble curry to multilayered, complex deliciousness. Beginning as a stir fry of generous chunks of eggplant, carrots, green beans, and boldly flavored leafy greens, the curry received a smartly portioned helping of curry powder and whole allspice berries before realizing its full potential of scrumptiousness with a dash of coconut milk, a couple tablespoons of coconut sugar, and a big ol’ batch of home-simmered chickpeas. The finished curry provided a satisfying, flavorful, and quite comforting meal, especially on a rather gloomy, blustery day.
Up for the Vassar Animal Rights Coalition (VARC) this week: a volunteer orientation session at the Duchess County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (DCSPCA) and Carol Adams’ lecture!
Until next time, Ali.
