Protein Fuelled Coconut Vegetable Curry

Protein Fuelled Coconut Vegetable Curry

Do you add protein powder to your vegetable curries? We do!

Our Coconut Vegetable Curry with Chickpeas and Rice is the perfect meal and is great for the cooler days and evenings we are having in the Southern Hemisphere.

Not only is it packed full of vegetables, we add a scoop or two of our Au Naturel Alkaline Complete Protein Powder to support our health and wellbeing. Did you know our Au Naturel Alkaline Complete Protein Powder includes just two ingredients - Certified Organic Biofermented Raw Sprouted Wholegrain Brown Rice and Yellow Pea Protein? It really is the perfect addition to savoury meals and soups - with no after taste and little flavour, it mixes extremely smooth.

Our Coconut Vegetable Curry transports easy and reheats so well.  Our recipe serves 4, simply half it or freeze what you don't eat and save for later when time is short. Plus you can use any vegetables you have on hand - pumpkin and eggplant are delicious additions!
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 leek, finely sliced
Fresh ginger, peels and grated (depending on your taste, add as much or as little as you like)
Curry powder (to taste)
1 can coconut milk
Vegetable stock
3 carrots, peeled and sliced
1 zucchini, diced
1/2 head of cauliflower, chopped
1 cup of frozen peas or 1 cup of fresh beans, chopped
1 scoop of VIVO Nue Au Naturel Alkaline Complete Protein Powder
2 cups of baby spinach leaves

1. Heat coconut oil in a large frying pan or pot. Add leek and stir, when softened add ginger. Stir well.

2. As the leek begins to brown, add curry powder and stir until fragrant. Then add coconut milk and enough vegetable stock for a smooth, rich sauce and stir well to combine. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer, with the lid on.

3. Once simmering, add carrots, zucchini and cauliflower and allow to cook for approximately 10 minutes with the lid on. Add peas or beans (or both).

4. Once the vegetables are cooked to your likely, turn the stove off and add a scoop of Au Naturel Alkaline Complete Protein Powder, stir well to combine. Then add the baby spinach leaves and put the lid back on the frying pan or pot to allow the leaves to wilt. Just before serving stir through the spinach leaves.

5. Serve with steamed rice or cauliflower rice, chickpeas, a slice of lemon, avocado and sprinkle over parsley and chilli flakes. Enjoy!
