coconut currylicious


I've been having curry cravings lately, which is a little strange. Not that I don't like curry, but I don't believe I've ever quite craved it before...The boy was having the opposite of a curry craving, stating that he couldn't explain it, but he definitely didn't want curry. I won him over easily, with a weapon I knew would work - the promise of coconut milk curry.



I quite enjoy the coconut milk curry. For one, I have a lot of trouble getting my curry curry-ish otherwise. I've tried loads of powder and the paste, and it just doesn't stay or spread. I've tried mixing with water, with veggie broth, with tomatoes...no luck. And secondly, it just tastes better. I do have some issues in figuring out what to do with the leftover coconut milk though, which is the one thing that keeps me from making this dish more often. I think I figured it out though: ice cream! Back to the curry for now though...

To make
1 tomato, chopped
1 largish sweet potato, chopped
1/2 can coconut milk
a little less than 1/2 tbsp cumin
1/2 tbsp tumeric
1/2-1 tsp cayenne (depending on how spicy you like it)
1 small white or yellow onion
2 cloves garlic, deveined
2 leaves kale, chopped
1 can chick peas

saute the onion and garlic with a bit of olive oil and water
toss in the tomato and toss, let soften a bit
pour in the 1/2can of coconut milk, mix with the spices
mix in the sweet potato and chick peas and cover pan
cook until the potatoes are soft
add in kale and cover. cook for about 3 minutes, long enough to just steam the kale.
mix together and serve. enjoy! (And if you're like me, steal all the kale for yourself! heehee)

Look forward to trying this. I freeze my leftover coconut milk but ice cream is a good solution too. A GREAT cookbook for soy/dairy free ice cream is The Ice Dream Cookbook by my colleague Rachel Albert@ thehealthycookingcoach.com.

I'm building my meal plan to allow for leftovers, because in any meal plan, really, leftovers are kind of needed to get by timewise.

A note on raw eating...I am trying to achieve a high raw lifestyle, meaning that 90-95% of what I'm eating is raw. However, when it comes to spices and oils and tamari, I am often not opting for the raw versions. For spices and oils, this is a matter of accessibility (other than coconut oil, which is easy and inexpensive to acquire); although I am going to try to find and use more whole versions of the spices (like the tumeric root and cardamon pods, for instance), it will still be very hard to determine whether these are raw. For tamari, this is because nama shoyu (the raw version) contains gluten, which I am allergic to. Now, you could go with bragg's soy sauce-like product, but I don't use enough o…

I already toted the many amazing benefits of sesame seeds here so we'll skip that part in this post and go straight to the awesomeness that is tahini.

Raw tahini is delightfully easy, and inexpensive, to make. And you can do such awesome things with it! I personally love using tahini as salad dressing. And when I discovered you could make a delicious cheese sauce with it...!! You can't really tell from the photo, but this makes a deliciously creamy and cheesy sauce that you can use on zucchini linguine, or for kale chips, or really just about anywhere that cheesy goodness could go (which is pretty much anywhere). The cheesy tahini broccoli is my version of Julie Morris's awesome recipe. While you're there check out her other recipes, yum they sure do look good!

Raw vegan chili and a raw meal plan for the lazy chef in all of us

Ok, it's been a great great weekend for many reasons: went to an amazing clothing swap put on by V. A. S. T., went to my adorable niece's birthday party, attended a wonderful raw potluck (yum!!), and went to my uncle and dad's joint bday lunch at my uncle's place. And to make everything even better, there were amazing people and conversations throughout it all!

So that part has been great. Of course, all the family get togethers mean that I haven't been eating as raw as I normally do. And I'm really noticing how much better my body does when I'm eating mostly raw. I feel much more grossly full and sluggish on cooked foods. And my throat is burning as it's giving me some serious acid reflux issues. I've also been on this stupid cleanse (I bought it a long time ago and figured I had better use it …
