A delicious dinner that’s quick enough to throw together last minute after a busy day, and good enough to serve to company, too! You can mix up the proteins as you wish – whatever strikes your fancy will probably work – and you can vary the veggies quite a lot, too. This dish makes a regular appearance on our menu, but is a bit different every time, depending on what ingredients I’m in the mood for or happen to have on hand.
Tip: I find it super helpful to have bags of organic frozen chopped brassicas stocked in the freezer at all times, to make last minute CleanKeto meal prep a breeze. And this recipe works great as part of your meal plan when you’re doing Dr. Emily’s 10 Day Detox, too, btw!
- 13.5-oz can of coconut cream (without additives like gums and thickeners – I like Trader Joe’s)
- 2 Tablespoons organic yellow curry powder (I like Frontier Co-op’s)
- 1 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
- 4 large cloves minced fresh garlic, or 1 Tablespoon prepared crushed garlic (ex. Dorot’s frozen), or to taste
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 10-oz package of frozen organic brassicas, chopped (kale, collards, broccoli rabe or florets, etc.)
- 2 pounds of the protein of your choice (I like Costco’s wild-caught Mahi Mahi, Cod, Tilapia or shrimp; poultry and pork also work really well in this)
- 2 Tablespoons pastured butter/ghee, avocado oil or coconut oil
- 2 x 12-oz bags of organic cauliflower rice (I like Costco’s)
- Warm coconut cream in a medium stock pot.
- Once coconut cream is warm (fully liquid), whisk in the curry powder until dissolved and well combined with coconut cream (no lumps of powder).
- Add the salt, garlic, onion, brassicas, and protein of choice.
- Simmer over medium heat until protein is cooked through (if using shrimp, add it towards the end of cooking time, once brassicas are almost to desired tenderness).
- Meanwhile, warm butter/ghee, avocado or coconut oil in large saucepan over medium heat.
- When oil is warm, add cauliflower rice and simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until desired tenderness.
- To serve, spoon cauli rice into pasta bowls, and top with curried protein and veggie mixture, with extra sauce as desired.
