An easy, healthy and super delicious vegetarian (vegan) one pot coconut curry

Right now I am in the middle of a wonderful adventure like I was exactly one year ago. A musical adventure. I’ve been living together with about 40 other lovely people my age in the theatre in the neighbour town 12 hours a day 10 days straight in order to make the most amazing show – just like last Easter break. The Easter break is where half a year worth of work culminates. And NOW we are ready – we’ll be playing every day this week. I really love these weeks. I love living in this big bubble of dancing, singing and acting together with the most amazing, funny and sweet people on earth. My stomach hurts from laughter. It is tough and I am extremely exhausted – but I love it! There is no better feeling than this one – we have fought and fought and worked and worked and now we are on stage giving EVERYTHING we have.


Lige nu står jeg midt i et utroligt eventyr igen ligesom jeg gjorde for præcis et år siden. Et musical eventyr uden lige. Ligesom sidste påske har jeg og ca. 40 andre unge boet i Galaksen (kulturhuset/ teatret i Værløse) 12 timer om dagen 10 dage i træk for i fællesskab at skabe et utroligt show. Påsken er kulminationen af et halvt års træning og NU går det løs med forestillinger hele den kommende uge. Og jeg nyder hvert et øjeblik. Jeg elsker på denne måde at få lov til at lukke mig ind i en kæmpe teater-, sang- og danseboble sammen med de mest fantastiske musicalmennesker. Det er hårdt. Det er intenst. Men mest af alt er det fantastisk sjovt. Min mave gør ondt så meget har eg grint. Der er ingen bedre følelse end den jeg har lige nu – at stå med en færdig forestilling, man har kæmpet for at lave og få lov at fyre den MAX af på scenen. Whoop!

We premiered yesterday and thereafter we threw a premiere party – so next day we are always off which feels insanely weird after ten so intense days. I couldn’t stand being away from the kitchen and my camera anymore – I mean, TEN days!!!

I hope I’ll be able to share some photos from the show soon.


I går havde vi præmiere med efterfølgende præmierefest, og dagen derpå har vi altid fri før det går løs igen i morgen. Og så kunne jeg ikke holde mig ude af køkkenet længere – ti dage væk fra køkken og kamera er lang tid (;

Jeg håber på at få lov at dele nogle billeder fra forestillingen snart.

Last summer I took a cooking class on Gili Islands in Indonesia where we made the most delicious chicken curry and I’ve been wanting to make a vegetarian version ever since – and here’s the result (unintentionally it even turned vegan). My family loved it – I hope you do too.

Happy belated Easter!


Sidste sommer tog jeg et kokkekursus på Gili Islands i Indonesien, hvor vi bl.a. lavede den lækreste kyllingecurry, og lige siden jeg sådan haft lyst til at lave en vegetarisk udgave, og her er den endelig (den endte endda med at blive vegansk). Min familie var vilde med den – det håber jeg også I er.

Glædelig forsinket påske!
