Easy Asparagus Curry with Chickpea Tofu, Spinach, Indian Spices and tomato curry. Asparagus Subzi. Indian Vegan Gluten-free Soy-free Recipe. Serve with Rice or flatbread.
Whenever I get introduced to new veggies, sometimes there are a few trials needed to get on board with the vegetable. Often when I have tried the new to me veggies like certain squashes, asparagus, broccoli etc at restaurants or cooked them at home in recipes I found online for the most common way to serve them, I was left at either ok with or not liking the vegetable. However, when I try these veggies in my own way in Indian food, it changes up the ball game. I end up liking them!
Did I mention that I am quite picky? Hubbs on the other hand loves vegetables, like any vegetables, which is amazing! Being picky has its pros and cons. It is helpful in a way because then the dishes I like or develop generally have many flavors, complex profiles and are generally pleasing to a larger audience. But because I am so particular, it takes me a while to warm up to certain flavors, textures and such. I don’t remember where I ate asparagus the first time, but I remember not liking it at all. But there is a ready fix. Add it to a curry. Indian spices, sauces and veggies are a match every time.
