Goan Vegetable Curry

Oh this was soooo yummy!  Lots of fresh colourful vegetables with a little tofu cooked in a Goan Curry paste and coconut milk.  This has got to be one of my new favourite recipes, its so easy to make (as most of my recipes are) and is really delicious and nutritious.  I had a wholemeal flatbread on the side with this dish and it was perfect for dipping in the coconut sauce mmm.  You could also serve this with some brown rice and a few salad items.

Ingredients

Coconut Oil 2 x tbsp

Chopped garlic cloves x 3-4

Fresh Lemongrass (tbsp of chopped)

Galangal (thumb piece of)

Sliced 2 x small red/green chillies

Onions

Broccoli

Colourful Peppers

Courgettes

Goan Curry Paste 3-4tbsp

Coconut Milk x 1 tin

Soy Sauce

Tofu or marinated tofu pieces

Coconut Sugar (Optional)

Stir fry the garlic, lemongrass, galangal, chilies and onions for 5-10 minutes on a medium heat.  Add the remaining vegetables and cook through with some additional water until almost tender, add in the Goan curry paste and stir.  Add in the coconut milk and a little soy sauce and tofu pieces.  Season with salt, pepper and a dash of soy!  You can also add a little coconut sugar for sweetness if you like.  Cook through until tofu is warmed up.

Serve with rice, breads, salad and smiles!

Enjoy!

Mexican Veggie Wrap

I love Mexican food and especially easy mexican recipes!ย  I made this really quick meal tonight for myself.ย  You could mix the veggies up a bit and use your own favourite vegetables.ย  It’s basically some garlic curly kale with mexican flavoured peppers and mushrooms with refried beans, homemade guacamole and homemade salsa.ย  I love using shiitake mushrooms, not only are they super nutritious but they are really meaty and a good replacement for the meaty meals! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I’ve broken the recipe up as follows:

Salsa

Cherry tomatoes

Lime

Red onion finely chopped

Chilies (optional, I left out as the kids were eating it)

Coriander chopped

Salt & pepper

Chop up all of the cherry tomatoes, blend very lightly if you wish, add in a squeeze of lime, finely chopped red onion, sliced chilies, and chopped coriander and season to serve.

Guacamole

Avocado

Lime

A spoon of salsa

Coriander

Salt and Pepper

Mash up a whole avocado or more if your making a bigger quantity.ย  Add in a squeeze of lime to your tastes, a spoon of the salsa, chopped coriander and season to serve.

Refried Beans

I used tinned mexican beans…mmm…you can make your own by mashing up pinto beans with stock garlic, water and seasonings.

Garlic Kale

Kale chopped

3 Garlic Cloves Chopped

Onion Chopped

Seasonings

Cook the kale up in a little water with the chopped garlic and onions and simmer until tender.ย  Season to serve.

Mexican Spiced Peppers & Meaty Mushrooms

Red Peppers Sliced

Onions Sliced

Shiitake or other meaty mushrooms sliced

Mexican Spice Mix

Fry up the peppers, onions and mushrooms in a little olive oil or water and add the spice mix to your tastes.ย  Season and serve.

Serve everything up in a warm wholemeal wrap and enjoy!ย  If you enjoyed this recipe please subscribe to this website for future recipes and my youtube channel for further recipes, holistic health and wellbeing ideas!

Salt & Pepper

Optional (chopped celery, chopped spring onions)

Salad ingredients – chopped tomato, cucumber, red onion, lettuce etc.
