Didn’t have the curry powder but it still turned out great! Added a little bit of carrots and nutmeg and only 1/2 tsp of cumin. Added a splash of milk as well. Turned out so good!
Great recipe, have made this 3 times. I’ve added some apple and sweet potato too.
I am pleasantly surprised. I get imperfect produce and I’m trying to make things that are in my produce box. Very Good!
