Hello My Dearest Foodies,
So here I am with my first recipe since the surgery, although I am not quite recovered yet. Also, my left hand is getting worse now, so I have a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT to make regarding the FRUITS AND VEGGIES MONDAY CONTEST.
As many of you know, our Dear Katie @plantstoplanks have been hosting it since my surgery and she is doing incredible job!!! She is not only great blogger, foodie, fitness coach, leader, well established member of the Vegan Steemit community and Steemit community in general, but also a wonderful friend. This is why I new that she will take her role of the host to her heart so I asked her if she would like to take the hosting completely.
She said YES so the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT is that Katie is taking over the FAVM Contest and I am retiring, lol. However, I will be around reading, commenting, upvoting and reposting your entries, so the change will be hardly noticeable.
And now before I go, I must say, this CURRY is absolutely dreamy, easy to make and highly nutritious. You should definitely try!

• Wakame flakes or Nori sheets 1 tbs
• Green chilli pepper to taste

• Transfer the mixture to a blender, add the cilantro and veggie broth and blend until smooth.
• Transfer the mixture to a pot.
• In a small dish, blend the Agar Agar with ¼ cup of water and add to the mixture in the pot. Stir well and add the lemon grass. Bring it to the boil, stir well again and take it off the heat.
• Add the Wakame or Nori at the end and stir again.
Ideally, it’s best to make the sauce one before is served, so all the ingredients have time to distribute into one delicious flavour.
Also, make sure to remove the lemon grass pieces before serving.
