Garden Veggie Coconut Curry and Salad


Here’s a quick little lunch or dinner with veggies from the garden.  Add a side salad and you’re all set.

Garden Vegetable Coconut Curry

1 T. olive oil

1 medium leek, chopped

½ cup chopped onion

1 tsp. brown mustard seeds

1 ½ tsp. curry powder

1 cup veggie broth

1 cup sliced carrots

1 cup cubed potato, unpeeled

2 cups cauliflower chunks or florets

½ cup organic coconut milk

½ tsp. seasoned salt to taste

Heat olive oil on medium low.  Add leeks, onion and mustard seeds and sauté 5 minutes.  Add carrots, cauliflower, potato and vegetable broth and simmer for 15 minutes.  Top it off with the coconut milk and warm until heated through.  Sprinkle with the seasoned salt & pepper to taste.

This version is stew-like in consistency.  If you want to serve it with rice you might want to add a little more broth to make it soupier.

You can get creative with this recipe and use whatever vegetables you have on hand.  I usually like to have a potato in the dish to give it some substance but this concept should work in a lot of various ways including spinach or kale in the mix.
