Alison Holst recipe: vege dish for pot luck dinner

redden39, Sep 1, 11:34pm
I had the yellow hardback book that was loaned and never returned. I'm missing a receipie Alison Holst had for a vege dish that she said went well at a pot luck dinner. You started with tinned veg like corn and made a curry sauce using the liquid from the tin and a few other things. You added whatever veges you fancied to the mix. Does anyone have the recipe please? I am going to a pot luck dinner next Thursday and would love to make it as it was delicious.
