Pork and Summer Squash Curry


Now is the time of the year for summer squash. Zucchini and yellow squash so abundant that some friends may even be giving it away. We are no exception to that. Receiving a few zucchini and squash every couple weeks from the in-laws, our curry has become more varied as a result. I really do love curry and how easy it is to make. Serving it with rice makes an easy meal and so filling. You can make curry as spicy as you like, and curry can easily be frozen to enjoy later. Like ratatouille, this curry cooked the squash and zucchini perfectly, and the flavors made them so enjoyable! The pork was added for a bit of extra flavor, but you can easily make this dish vegetarian by excluding the pork and substituting in vegetable broth in instead of beef.
