I choose to be conscious about what my family ingests. By eating a low-gluten, low-dairy, and low-meat diet, we get exposed to a lot more whole grains and veggies. Veggies are our best friends! Ok. Ignore that. That's an exaggeration.
Sometimes, not wanting to eat a sandwich means I'm scrounging for food that will be filling, satisfying, and fit with my sensitivities. A girl can only eat so many almonds and apples before she starts to crave pizza...
Here's an easy one dish meal that I eat almost daily during the winter. It's easy to dress up or customize,so feel free to add what you love.
P.S. Organic coconut crème is on sale this week at Nitzat Duv D'van.
2 cups coconut milk
1 cup water
1 generous tablespoon of curry powder
Salt (the good stuff- check out my resource page!)
Veggies/greens of any mix (I favor kale and bok choy), but really any veggie works
Any herbs you have on hand (I love coriander and parsley)- chopped
Brown rice noodles (1 square or 2)
Beans (already cooked- I keep some on hand in the freezer)
Optional- Tofu (if you want some extra protein)
Squeeze of lemon
Place the first five ingredients into a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and when veggies are cooked (kale and boy chok take a few minutes only), add the brown rice noodles and beans. Cook for three more minutes. Voila- dinner from cutting board to cooked in less than 10 minutes.
This is for 3 good-sized servings, but you can easily adjust to suit your crowd. B'tay avon!
