Vegan Curry Meal Prep

As part of our Meals that Heal series, we had the pleasure of creating a few different versions of vegan curry. This hearty flavorful recipe is very filling without being overwhelming. The perfect mid day meal for lunch at home or on the go.  The combination of ginger, onion, and healing spices combine to arm your immune system against the aches and pains of a winter cold.
