GREEN SUPERFOODS CURRY

A superfood is basically a food that has a superior amount of nutrition compared to their peers.

In the vegetable world, the green ones take the prize, with all of them nutritious enough to wear the superfood label. Think silverbeet, broccoli, kale and spinach.

Curries are fantastic in winter. We often crave the rich flavours and creamy texture but many people worry about the excess energy and fat that they might be consuming. Don’t worry, this recipe is packed full of green vegetables and contains less coconut milk than traditional recipes. This means all the flavour but much less energy making it good for the waistline as well as your overall health.

Heat the oil in a large, deep frying pan or wok. Add the curry paste and saute until fragrant. Add the coconut milk and stock and bring to the boil.

Reduce the heat and add the chilli, lime juice, brown sugar, fish sauce and chicken. Simmer for 8 minutes.

Add the broccoli, silverbeet and kale and simmer for a further 3-4 minutes. You can simmer for longer if you prefer the vegetables to be softer.

Serve immediately with or without rice.
