A few weeks ago, we had the unfortunate experience of going out for dinner and inadvertently having a non-vegan meal. If you’re vegan, it’s probably happened to you too. Here’s what happened in shorthand. We were Old Town Pasadena on a Saturday night and went to Curry House for dinner. We’d read reviews that their vegetarian curry was actually vegan, and I’d been craving some comfort food. There were two or three options for us on the menu and I was very optimistic. Jane was chatting with the waitress after we were done eating, and discovered that the curry sauce is made with chicken stock! She explained to the waitress that chicken stock is not vegetarian, and we were offered a free drink, but still. I was really bummed. I’d really been enjoying my meal and was looking forward to going there again. Obviously, that’s not going to happen!
So, last night, Jane surprised me with homemade vegan Japanese curry. She used the S&B – Golden Curry Sauce Mix (Medium Hot) and it was quite tasty, even better since it was made cruelty free.
Jane said the curry mix was easy to work with but a little bizarre. It pops out of it’s plastic tray and looks a bit like a green chocolate bar. She promised me I’ll get to see it next time she makes this dish. Our curry consisted of tofu, onions, orange peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, and snap peas.
