Hey there :)
Dou you guys like ladybugs? As a Kid I loved them. I remember being happy when one landed somewhere close to me, or on top of my finger if I was lucky. Today we are having like a thousand ladybugs on our balcony. It’s crazy. You open the door for like 5 minutes and Hello 20 ladybugs in your living room. Drives me crazy nowadays. They smell bad. I have never realized this until recently. Any ideas how to deal with them? Because I am sure soon they gonna start eating me ^^°
Anyway, to the recipe. It’s a pretty simple curry. As with every curry I know the ingredients are more of a suggestion than a must-add. Feel free to omit some stuff or add any other. Like ladybugs for example ;)
You could also turn this into a curry soup just by adding more water. I think this is also a nice recipe for batch cooking as the flavor gets more intense the next days. So if you have a busy week ahead of you making something like this the weekend might help you get through the following days :)
prep time:about 40 minutes +++ serves: 4-6
- 1 big onion
- 2 big carrots
- ½ Cup chopped broccoli florets
- 1 medium sweet potato
- 4 bunches baby pok choi
- ¾ Cup cooked black beans
- 1 apple
- 2 Cups / 500ml vegetable broth
- 1 can coconut milk
- 4 Tbsp. curry powder
- 2 Tbsp. turmeric
- 2 tsp. cayenne pepper
- 2 tsp. cumin
Wash and chop the vegetables into bite-size pieces.
In a big pot heat some coconut oil over medium heat. Add the onions, carrots, broccoli and sweet potato pieces and sauté them for about 3 minutes. Then add the spices and stirring frequently sauté together for another 2 minutes.
Then pour about 1 Cup / 250ml of vegetable broth into the pot. Stir until well combined.
Wash, and grate the apple and add it to the curry. It adds some sweetness without being overly dominant and enhances the flavor.
Cook the Curry over medium heat for about 5 minutes, so that the liquid reduces a bit. Stir occasionally After 5 minutes add some more broth. Depending on how liquid you like your Curry you might need more or less. So don’t add all at once.
Add the can of coconut milk and stir until combined. Let cook for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. While it cooks you can check and decide to add some more broth. I have used exactly 2 Cups / 500ml.
Add the black beans and the pok choi and let it cook for another 5 minutes. Then turn off the heat, but you can leave the pot on the stove.
Serve with some rice, quinoa or naan.
