A few months ago, I did an interview for Real Simple on meal planning, and I mentioned how much I love dump recipes. These are the meals you make when all the stuff is going bad in your refrigerator at the same time. This shrimp and vegetable curry is just that: a perfect vessel for all the wilty veggies in your crisper. In the post below, I tell you how I made it and give you plenty of ideas for alternate ingredients so you can use up that random eggplant you decided to buy when you had no recipes in mind for it.
