coconut veggie curry

The other night the kids and I were headed home, and all I could think of was "let's pick up a pizza on the way home". And I have this silly game that I play with myself, where when I'm tempted to go pick up food I like to go home and see what I can throw together with what I have on hand. Then I justify spending what I saved not buying fast food for my family with something later, like a cute pair of earrings. (sometimes! And other times I actually DO save money ;)

Well I got home and saw that we didn't have much in our house. But I did see that can of coconut milk and new I wanted curry. We are CURRY.FANS in our house. So I started the rice cooker, and started rummaging the cupboards for ingredients. This is the curry I came up with:
1 15 ounce can of coconut milk
2 T Braggs Liquid Amino Acids (use soy sauce if you don't have this)
2 t Curry powder
1 T Agave Nectar
1/2 t Salt
1/4 t Ground Cayenne Pepper
1 T Corn Starch in 1 T Water to make a slurry

Pour coconut milk in a sauce pan, stir in all the other ingredients and bring to a boil over medium heat.

Then after my sauce was made, I stirred in a bunch of frozen veggies (from the Costco stir fry vegetable bag) and let them cook up.
Serve over cooked rice.

Gwen ate three servings. After first declaring that she hates this dinner.
