This Vegan Coconut Curry Rice is the perfect comfort food during these last few weeks of winter. This dish is so unbelievably creamy and delicious. The split peas add so much plant-based protein and make a truly filling meal. This is one of my favourite pre-workout meals because it provides complete carbs, healthy fats from the coconut milk, and tons of protein.
