On My Hearth: Vegetable Curry

I've mentioned many times how much I love strong flavors so you know this dish is one of my faves! I know that making it myself has to be healthier than picking it up from my local Thai restaurant where I'm sure they add more fat, coconut milk, etc.

We're going to the first gig of our friend's new band this afternoon so I'll toss this into the crockpot this morning, it'll be ready when we get home.

I really love curry, especially with broccoli for some reason.
