Cashew Coconut Curry with Spiralized Vegetables

An easy coconut curry with spiralized vegetables and cashews that’s gluten free, vegan, and served over a fluffy bed of quinoa.

Cashew Coconut Curry with Spiralized Vegetables

Funny story. I made Luca (and me!) a tofu curry for lunch. I didn’t spiralize the bell peppers, because I wanted thicker pieces for him to grab on to. I added some leftover cooked zucchini slices and some green beans. Luca loved it (you can see him eating everyday here), and I decided to make another version, using spiralized veggies and some snow peas I had from the farmer’s market.

I made the curry, photographed it, and ate it. As I was on one of my final bites (so good!), I noticed it: I forgot the tofu!

SO. Today’s curry recipe was meant to be with curry (and I recommend you adding tofu to it- it needs a little extra something), but when I asked you guys on Instagram if you cared, the resounding answer was: no. Done is better than perfect has been my life motto (I’m not a perfectionist by any means),

Long story short, this cashew coconut curry was supposed to be a Tofu Cashew Coconut Curry, but now it’s a choose-your-own-adventure kind of recipe. You can stir in your protein of choice at the end – chicken, tofu, pork, shrimp, whatever!

The flavor here is on point – it’s a medium level spice, it simmers until slightly thick so that it serves well with a bed of quinoa or brown rice to absorb the flavor. Packed with vegetables and crunchy cashews, it’s a curry you’ll want to have in your recipe collection forever!

You can also switch up the vegetables – like I said, I made it for Luca with green beans, but then with snow peas for me! Have fun with food!

Hi, I'm busy whipping this up and just noticed that the recipe states that it serves 4, but to divide the recipe into two bowls at the end. Based on the size I'm guessing the 4 servings is correct, but could you please confirm? Thanks! Your recipes are the BEST!

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
