Happy new year! I hope 2022 is off to an acid-kicking start for you!The first recipe I’m sharing this year is one you can make all winter long for tasty dinners that will fill you up on cold nights with plant-based, nutrient-rich ingredients.
This Green Goddess Curry combines any type of greens with a bunch of other veggies: green beans, broccoli, onion, snow peas, and Brussels sprouts. It’s flavored with green curry paste (or powder), coconut milk, and cilantro or Thai basil. You can use regular basil if you can’t find the Thai variety at your store.
You’ll get plant-based protein from chickpeas and quinoa, if you choose to serve it over already prepared quinoa, which we always do in my house. That part is not included in the recipe, but prepare according to package directions or as you usually do.
This is one of those dinners you’ll be glad to have in your regular rotation.My newest book is packed with tasty dinners that cook in minutes to serve up a satisfying, anti-inflammatory meal that will help you end your sugar cravings and heal your body deliciously!
