There are some scents, flavors and ingredients capable of improving any bad day, for me a dish that definitely has this power is vegetable curry. Simple and quick to prepare, vegetable curry is an Indian cuisine typical recipe, which I propose in a 100% plant-based version with seasonal ingredients that are genuine, tasty, and rich in benefits.
The peculiarity of this dish is certainly the coconut milk in can, an ingredient maybe little-used in the Italian tradition, but capable of giving creaminess, delicacy and enveloping taste to the dishes. Coconut milk and curry create an irresistible taste, one of the mixes that I prefer in the kitchen and that I absolutely recommend you to try, if you haven’t already.
Healthy and Beneficial Ingredients
In my version of curry, I like to use several ingredients rich in benefits and seasonal vegetables that contribute to our body health. For example: coconut milk provides vitamins, including vitamin C, and minerals such as potassium and magnesium; broccoli is also a source of zinc, iron and K and B vitamins; chards have diuretic and antioxidant properties, good for the intestinal well-being, and all the other elements of this dish are genuine, tasty and rich in quality. Clearly, this recipe can be prepared at any time of year, varying the ingredients with the seasonal alternatives that Nature offers us.
