Curried Veggies

Green beans, carrots and spinach — what makes a filling meal packed with flavor? Yearning for Indian food, I cooked up a curry from those fresh veggies. Since I’m a weakling when it comes to spice, curry is great for clearing my sinuses for when I’m sick, but also is great for its warmth in both flavor and temperature.
