Curry Curry Curry!  I could eat curry everyday.  Jamaican curry, Indian curry, Malaysian curry.  I’m obsessed!  This coconut curry is pretty great.  I love it because it’s super easy to make. Just blend the ingredients and add it to the pot with coconut milk.  You can eat this with rice noodles like I usually do, or sweet potato noodles (a new favorite gluten free noodle of mine), or just with steaming brown rice!

Give it a try.

Recipe type: Lunch
Serves: Serves 2 - 3
Ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom or 6 cardamom pods
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • ½ tablespoon garam masala
  • 2 sprigs green onions
  • 1 cup cilantro
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 1 large knob, approximately 1 heaping tablespoon, fresh ginger
  • 6 curry leaves (optional)
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 ½ cups coconut milk
  • 1 cup water or vegetable stcok
  • 1 cup bok choy, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup broccoli florets, fresh or frozen (thawed)
  • 2 cups cooked white rice noodles
Instructions
  1. Blend the first 10 ingredients together until you have a green curry paste. If your blender is having trouble blending it then add another tablespoon of water at a time until it begins to blend.
  2. Place a large pot on medium-high heat. Add the coconut milk, water/vegetable stock, and the curry paste you made. Stir and bring to a simmer. Once it is simmering reduce the heat to low, cover with a lid, and let cook for about 10 minutes to allow the flavors to merry.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the rice noodles according to the packet instructions. If there are no instructions, I usually boil about 4 cups of water, add the noodles, and cook for 6 – 7 minutes, drain, drizzle with a teaspoon of sesame oil ( or any oil you have so they don't stick) and set aside.
  4. After the coconut curry has cooked for 10 minutes add the broccoli and cook 5 – 10 minutes, depending on how cooked you like your broccoli. For this dish I like mine to be crisp and not to soft. Next add the bok choy and turn off the heat. The heat of the curry will cook the bok choy enough.
  5. Place some rice noodles in you bowl. Pour our desired amount of the coconut curry over the noodles and serve.
Notes
Sometimes the rice noodles are called Rice Sticks. Sometimes you won't be able to understand any of the language on the package, so just look for fat, white, rectangular shaped noodles. I purchase my rice noodles from authentic Asian stores. The only ingredients should be Rice and Water. I would not buy any rice noodles with more than those two ingredients.

Kale Ginger Pineapple Smoothie
 
Prep time
Total time
 
Author:
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 1 large smoothie
Ingredients
  • 5 kale leaves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger
  • 2 cups water, filtered if possible
  • 2 cups pineapple juice or orange juice
  • ¼ inch slice of lemon
Instructions
  1. NSTRUCTIONS
  2. Blend everything together until smooth. Add water to adjust the sweetness and consistency, if desired.
Notes
NOTES

Lemon peel and pith have many health benefits so I like to blend whole slices of lemons in my smoothies. If your blender is not strong enough to blend lemon with the peel attached to it then I would use the juice of 1 or 2 lemons (taste to see how many you want to use).

    I have heard that ginger is very beneficial but don’t have it on hand. I havent tried curry but after reading your post and love for Indian Curry, Jamaican Curry and Malaysian Curry I want to almost check it out. Your smoothie sounds good! I dont often have the juice but the next time I pick it up I’m going to grab kale and ginger too!
