Roasted Chicken Coconut Curry

This recipe is so good that once I made it the first time, I made it again only 5 days later.  The first time was for a few friends who came over for a Sunday night dinner and we all knew right away that this was a winner. I probably took the most complicated route to making this recipe, since I roasted the chicken myself and toasted/ground my own spices, but don’t worry because I show you tips along the way that will save you some time in... Read More

Fresh Coconut Curry – and how to make Homemade Coconut Milk

I have been working at juice bars for over 2 years now where we make fresh coconut milk daily.  It’s a tasty treat that isn’t too hard to whip up, just takes the confidence to swing around knives large enough to crack open the young Thai coconut’s shell.  At one place I worked they required us to wear a chain mail glove on one hand to prevent the loss of any digits – a small price to pay for the light, sweet, creamy taste... Read More

While I had previously been pretty bored by broccoli and cauliflower, expecting only to toss them in a puréed soup or stir fry,... Read More

curry tomato dipping sauce

this recipe started off as an attempt at ketchup, but the result was much thicker – and tastier – than a traditional ketchup.  the vinegar and brown sugar are standard for a ketchup recipe, giving it a tangy flavor, but i added some curry spices (turmeric, cumin and coriander) as well as some cayenne pepper and ginger powder to give it a little kick. pretty much anything fried would be delicious if dipped in this sauce, like french fries... Read More

Baked Curry Sweet Potato Fries

Fries are one of my biggest weaknesses.  I could heat up a pot of oil and fry some myself, but baking them is a lot easier and way less greasy and messy. Plus, I find it way easier to season them before popping them in the oven rather than after they are covered in scalding hot oil.  I chose curry, which is a combination of turmeric, coriander, and cumin, because of its pleasant and mildly spicy flavor.   Baked Curry Sweet Potato Fries 1/2... Read More

steamed kale salad with curry peanut dressing

i love kale. it’s tasty and good for you. like many dark, green, leafy vegetables it’s high in vitamin A. but because A is a fat soluble vitamin our bodies cannot absorb it if we don’t eat it with some type of fat. that’s why i like to eat my kale in a tasty salad with flax or olive oil. or with any nut will do, especially peanuts. throw some curry in the mix and you’ve got yourself a really kick ass kale salad.
