Spicy Vegan Potato Curry
Like many others, I scaled down the amount of Cayenne, but left everything else as is. I meant to taste test this, but ended up standing at the stove eating it out of the pan with a spoon. Delish! Thank you for this amazing recipe!!!

Love this recipe! I have used it over & over. The only thing I do differently is to use 2 6oz bags of fresh spinach instead of the frozen. Great recipe! Thanks!
