Vegetarian Thai Green Curry with Cauliflower Rice Recipe

et no vegetable go to waste, make that your kitchen mantra and allow the world of curries to survive past ethnic restaurants and culinary trips abroad. Until you find your curry groove, try to replicate this Thai Green Curry with cauliflower rice to experience something far greater than ordinary.

Vegetarian Thai Green Curry With Cauliflower Rice

It is one of those spicy-vegetarian-feel-good dishes that are well worth the time it takes to prepare and cook. If you are so inclined, celebrate your modern Paleo life with a small glass of white wine.

Just about anything can be added to a curry; use what you have on hand, but make sure to add the proper spices for authentic zing. Indian curry utilizes flavors such as cardamom, cloves, cumin, nutmeg, and cassia bark, while Thai curry embraces seasonings of shrimp paste, chilies, shallots, lemongrass, coriander, and garlic.

The importance of spices is far underrated in our contemporary fare. They increase the depth of flavors with their warming or cooling effects, and they can limit inflammation and help soothe digestive disorders from within. Complex herbs they are – simply put, they increase the enjoyment of food.

An orange drink made from fresh ginger and turmeric is often served with breakfast, but we think it goes great with curry too. If it is a hint of sweetness you may be craving, then perhaps this Raspberry Lime Flavored Water will quench your thirst between aromatic bites.
