How This Nourishes Your Body
Everyone needs a good coconut curry recipe. The first time I tried curry, I was hooked. I have been obsessed with turmeric lately, and have been looking for ways to get it into my body whenever possible.
A big bowl of savory, nutrient dense soup seems to do the trick.
Curry can be extremely nourishing to your body and make you feel amazing from the inside out
1. Nourishing broth: Bone broth and home made stocks are incredibly healing to the body. They regulate digestion, are amazing for hair, skin, and nails, and significantly boost your immune system. Read more about the incredible benefits of bone broth here.
2. Coconut milk: Full of medium chain fatty acids that fuel your brain, balance your hormones, promote energy, and keep you full for long periods of time.
3. Detoxifying vegetables: Cauliflower, garlic, onions, and spinach all are bursting with nutrients that will give you energy, prevent disease, promote healthy digestion, and clear skin.
4. Healing spices: Turmeric is one of the most healing herbs you can put into your body. It prevents disease, detoxifies your body, and is one of the most powerful substances to reduce inflammation in your body. Inflammation = disease, skin problems, anxiety, depression, and joint pain.

- This is a dish to load the veggies in! Whatever you have on hand. I typically use a head of broccoli, 4 full carrots, 1 large onion, green and red bell pepper, tons of kale and cauliflower rice.
- You can make this go faster by purchasing 2 bags of mixed frozen veggies in without the chopping involved!
- You can add sweet potatoes/butternut squash to make it more warming and grounding in the winter. I typically leave them out in the summer months.
- I love how you can make this dish with different protein options. Chicken is the traditional version, but I like it with beef/buffalo sometimes as well! If you do not want meat, try adding some soaked black beans!
1. Start by cooking the meat of your choice.
2. Remove the cooked meat and set a side in a bowl.
3. Add the coconut milk and chicken stock to a large pot along with the curry paste, butter, turmeric, lime, garlic. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
4. Then add the frozen or fresh veggie mixes to the pot, stir, and cover while cooking for 5 minutes. If you added sweet potato, cook until soft.
5. Remove the lid and stir in the chicken, beef, or beans. Cover and cook for the last 5 minutes.
6. Serve over a bowl of cauliflower rice or by itself.
To make cauliflower rice:
1. Place head of cauliflower in blender and pulse until it turns into the consistency of rice.
2. Either saute on low heat in coconut oil until soft, or steam until it becomes the softness you wish (does not take long)
