MRE RECIPE: Thai Squash Curry - Vegan

I was asked to have some vegan meals in my book, so I came up with this delicious curry recipe. This recipe has LOTS of ingredients, but it's worth it!  Protein sources, besides the veggies, are beans and seeds. Give it a try!

1/4 cup diced cooked dehydrated winter squash (pumpkin, acorn, butternut, etc)
1/4 cup diced dried sweet potatoes
1/4 cup cooked dehydrated garbanzo beans/chickpeas
2 tbsp coconut milk powder
1 tbsp pumpkin seeds, shelled, dried
1 tbsp carrot dices
1 tbsp bell pepper strips or dices
a few halved cherry tomatoes
1 tbsp red onion dices
1 tbsp orange powder
1 tbsp lime powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp brown sugar
1 vegan bouillon cube or 2 tsp dehydrated homemade vegan broth
pinch red chili flakes or other hot pepper
pinch turmeric
pinch apple cider vinegar powder
pinch ground coriander seeds
pinch ground cumin
tiny pinch fennel seed
s & p to taste

Combine all and seal. When ready to eat, reconstitute with boiling water until thick and hot. Serve over jasmine rice, and sprinkle fresh nasturtium petals on top. Yummmy!  Adjust spices to fit your taste buds.

  • Very healthy dish. The beans and seeds give a great amount of protein, and the veggies and spices provide lots of nutrition.
  • Gluten-free: naturally
  • Dairy-free: naturally
  • Low-sugar: naturally (the 1/2 tsp of brown sugar isn't much)
