This beautiful dish can be made with any vegetables you like. I chose items I needed to use from my garden and my fridge on this night. Coconut milk is so comforting and Prawns are a great source of protein. Prawns can be substituted nicely for chicken. Curry warms you nicely and yams add a subtle sweetness to this dish. This is a simple clean recipe that is not overwhelming to make but tastes like you spent hours on it. Coconut, Vegetable and Prawn Curry with Yams, Yum!
1/2 Tbsp Coconut oil
5 cloves minced garlic
6 small carrots chopped
1 sweet onion chopped

1 yam chopped into 1 inch pieces
1 cup broccoli
1/2 zucchini chopped
20 cherry tomatoes halved
