    I love Extra Easy but lose most on red days. I also love curries but have always had them with rice and naan bread. Now I can give up the naan but I don't know what to have instead of rice on red days. Any suggestions on what I can have?

    Put diced butternut squash into your curry, it adds some "bulk" to it and makes it a bit more filling. BNS is my best friend on red days, it's my potato substitute!

    I sometimes have curries on a bed of spinach or chop up cauli and broccoli and pour the curry over it.
    I know its not quite the same as rice!
    I think we are conditioned to serve curry on 'something' and using veg can only be a good thing surely?

    The other thing to do is make a nice side dish or two to have with your curry, like a spinach dish or a cauli dish. I have a SW curry book at home which has things like that in. I bet there's some recipes on the website.

    How about making cauli 'rice'? You bung a fresh cauli in a food processor with the grating blade in (or just chop it up really small) then fry it (either in a HB tbsn of o/oil or fry light) for a few mins, adding herbs in if you like ..... it looks like rice and after its been 'fried' it really doesn't taste like cauli, it takes on the taste of whatever you put with it.

    Honestly, I know it sounds bizarre but try it, it works.

    Thanks for the ideas. I've got a few things to try out now next time we have curry which will probably be quite soon.

    I have curries on green days as I also love vegetarian curries. One of my favourite recipes is the Sweet Potato and Spinach curry. That is so lovely with rice. Next week I shall have a chicken curry with butternut squash on a red day. I'll just have to do some rice separately for my son. He won't eat anything that's too veggie.
