Easy Vegan Curried Vegetables

It’s cold in Austin, and I’ve been dealing with some gut health issues. For the past few weeks, I’ve had to limit my raw food intake to help reduce symptoms, and it’s forced me to actually use my stove.

This recipe was a result of me getting tired of plain steamed veggies and me trying to throw something together with what I had in the pantry. I do want to note that after reading about the benefits of coconut milk for your digestive lining, I had to search online to find guar-free coconut milk (#’merica). I recommend using Native Forest Simple if you want to be good to your gut.
