Preparation

  1. Start by making the curry paste by simply blending everything into the food processor until it's well mixed and ground down into a paste (see above photo).
  2. Now for the curry - on medium/high heat warm the coconut oil and onions for 5 minutes. Then add all the vegetables, coconut sugar, curry paste and 1/4 cup water and let this simmer with the cover on for about 10 minutes. Add more water gradually so that the veggies don't burn. Once the veggies have cooked down, add the coconut milk and 1 cup water, and cook for another 10 minutes until the veggies are fully cooked. Stir in the fresh lime juice, extra cilantro leaves and, top over brown rice or quinoa!
