Recipe Time: 10 minute prep, 25 minute cook time
- 1 Tbs. minced garlic
- About a 1 inch section of fresh ginger, grated (or 1/4-1/2 tsp. ground)
- 1 Tbs. olive oil
- 1 lime, juiced
- 3-4 Tbs. red curry paste (Or more, depending on how spicy you like it. I used Thai Kitchen)
- 1 onion, chopped
- 4 carrots, sliced into thin circles.
- 1 green or red bell pepper, sliced into thin strips
- 1 cup chopped cauliflower (optional)
- 1 can chickpeas
- 1 can coconut milk
- 1 Tbs. soy sauce (use gluten free if necessary)
- About 1/2 cup water
- 2 large handfuls of chopped kale
- Chop the onion into small pieces, chop the kale and cauliflower, and slice the carrots and bell peppers.
- Place the cauliflower in a steamer, and cook until tender. Begin cooking the quinoa according to instructions.
- While the cauliflower and quinoa are cooking, in a large pan or pot, sauté the garlic, ginger, and onions in olive oil over medium heat for 3 minutes. Add the bell pepper and carrots, and continue to cook until tender (about 10 minutes).
- Once the bell pepper, carrots, and onion are tender, add 1 Tbs. of the red curry paste, drained chickpeas, soy sauce, and lime juice. Continue to cook over medium-low heat for 3-5 minutes.
- Add the coconut milk, water, kale, and cooked cauliflower to the pan. Heat over medium-low heat until kale is wilted and the curry is simmering. Add more curry paste if you want more spice/flavor. Serve over cooked quinoa and ENJOY :D
