Spinach Mushroom Curry from Trader Joe’s


Spinach Mushroom Curry from Trader Joe’s – made super easily and quickly by using shortcut ingredients: already sliced mushrooms, canned garbanzo beans, curry simmer sauce, etc.

Prepare it in just a few  minutes! Really!

It’s delicious!

I was preparing some meals from my cookbook, ” Quick and Healthy Meals from Trader Joe’s” for my “Cooking for One or Two from Trader Joe’s” cooking class last week in Walnut Creek and chose this one to make.

Oh my gosh! I had forgotten how good it was when I created it when I wrote the cookbook!

I was so happy to have re-discovered it and have added it to the list of recipes that I will make often. It makes a lot and is very filling.

If you already have the updated cookbook,  it’s on page 105.

If you don’t have a copy yet, here is the simple Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten-free and dairy free recipe:

3 small potatoes, chopped (can leave skins on)

1 package TJ’s Crimini mushrooms, sliced

1 can TJ’s Garbanzo beans, rinsed
