  • 125 g almond butter (100% ground almonds)
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp curry powder

For the veges

  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 2 cups mushrooms
  • 4 cups spinach
  • 2 cups brocolli (chopped into florets)

Instructions

For the curry mixture

  1. Put the coconut milk, almond butter, tomato paste and curry powder in a blender. Blend for about 20 seconds or until smooth.

  2. Add the curry mixture to a saucepan on low-medium heat and heat for 10-15 minutes or until heated through. Stir frequently to avoid sticking.

  2. Serve the veges in a bowl with the curry mixture poured over the top.

Recipe Notes

You can make the almond butter by grinding almonds in a food processor. There's a great tutorial here: http://detoxinista.com/2012/09/homemade-almond-butter/

The curry mixture separates if left to sit in the fridge for a while, so be sure to stir it thoroughly before using if you have stored it in the fridge.
