Zucchini and Spinach Indian Curry

Vegan Mofo Recipe #2

Curries are one of my favorite things to eat.  A couple of weeks ago I want to an indian restaurant in San Francisco.  The food was delicious and I left so happy.  However, the next day I felt completely bloated.  My face felt like a balloon.  I'm not sure what they use in there curries, maybe a lot of salt or MSG, but it made me feel horrible.  This is a great recipe to use when you need your next Indian fix.  You can use any veggies you have lying around.
