Dinner tonight: Spicy Curry Sauce over steamed veggies and cauliflower “rice”

Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats by Sally Fallon is one of my favorite cookbooks of all time. It is filled with tons of super nourishing, real food recipes from fresh bone broth to spaghetti squash casserole and chicken enchiladas with homemade red sauce. I haven’t tried a recipe that I didn’t love, though I have to admit, there are some I am not quite willing to try…yet {I’m talking Roe Cakes and Sweetbreads on Toast!}

One of my favorite recipes is the Curry Sauce {page 149}. Not only is it quick and easy to whip up, but there are so many different ways you can serve it. Often times I will steam veggies, cook up some chicken and throw it all right into the sauce. I used to pour the mixture over a bed of brown rice, but I recently discovered cauliflower “rice” and I am hooked! {and goodness, it is so much faster and totally fool proof! Mom…} Tonight I did it a bit different and layered the ingredients on my plate…”rice” then veggies then sauce poured over the pile. People, this is good stuff!

The best part about this recipe is that it incorporates so many nutrient-packed ingredients- grass-fed butter, cold-pressed organic olive oil, onion, curry powder {made from ten different powerful antioxidant rich spices}, fresh stock, coconut milk…and the list goes on! One of the most important concepts we try to embrace and need to remember daily is how powerful real food can be to our health and overall wellbeing. A recipe like this packs a solid punch in the ring and is an easy way to beef up your nutrient intake.

Another fun fact…curry is claimed to be one of the most powerful aphrodesiacs. Ladies, I’m sure the hubs will love this recipe so eat up!

Curry Sauce

Makes 2 cups

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 cup onion, finely chopped

1 cup yellow pepper, finely chopped

1 tablespoon red or green hot chile pepper, minced (optional, I rarely use this)

3-4 tablespoons curry powder

1 cup fish, chicken or beef stock

1 ½ cups coconut milk

¼ cup fresh lime juice

Pinch of sea salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

Use fish stock is your sauce is for fish, chicken stock for chicken, beef stock for red meat.

Saute vegetables in butter and oil until tender. Add curry powder and blend in. Add stock, bring to a boil and whisk smooth. Add coconut milk. Let mixture boil gently until reduced to about half. Remove from heat, stir in lime juice and season to taste.

From here, you can do with the sauce whatever you’d like! Steam veggies, cook up some grass-fed meat and throw it into the sauce or pour the sauce over the goods. Dream big! 😉

Let me know how you enjoyed your version of this Curry Sauce!

Shine Bright my friends!
