If you're like me (maybe you're not) you'll find some things you just can't stomach. For example, I can't eat butternut squash straight out, not sure why, I just don't like it.. And why should you force yourself to eat something you don't like even if it's good for you? Well there is a way.

If I have vegetables that are going to go off soon or are something I tried and don't like, I soup them. I boil them, blend them up and put them in the fridge, with a little pepper and herbs they taste pretty good, not my favorite thing but decent.

Anyone else do this? If not, you should.

hi mythil, i curry, not soup, just buy some curry flavoring paste or something from the shops (tikka is good) or just make your own up, cook it up in a saucepan (i can give you details if you like, but it really doesn't matter how you cook it)
when i make it, i either have a specific ingredient i want to use (like beans, split peas or something for protein content) or i just want to use up some vegetables

You can do. Personally I don't buy anything pre-made anymore.

I think he is talking about curry powders, rather than curry paste you buy in a jar.

curry paste is basically just this anyway:

    Heat a little oil in a pan/pot,
    A clove or two of garlic and half onion chopped up fine,
    Mix a few teaspoons of curry spices in a bowl such as muchidna mentioned, cumin, tumeric, even with generic curry powder which is almost always vegan.
    Throw the onions and garlic into the hot oil give it a quick stir
    Chuck in the spices, another quick stir,
    Pour in a little boiling water from the kettle

Then dump in your lentils, split peas, filthy week old rotten squash, whatever you like :D

Fill it up with some more hot water and let it curry on doown.
