This Japanese-style curry proves that vegetarian dishes are anything but boring. A medley of veggies — squash, eggplant, bell pepper, and onion — are cooked in a rich broth with golden curry bouillon and butter. Serve it over rice and be amazed that Meatless Monday was that easy. 

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.
