Spring Broccoli & Peas Coconut Curry

IMG_0805

The last time I made this dish was more than 2 years ago. With Spring in full bloom, I thought it would be nice to revisit it, as it features some Spring vegetables, including broccoli and peas. The coconut curry is super decadent tasting but comes incredibly light to the body! Enjoy every bit.

Here are some glowing facts about the showstopper, aka broccoli:

Broccoli: is packed with potassium, magnesium and calcium, which help regulate blood pressure, contains the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C, fights cancer, contributes to bone health with its vitamin K and calcium content, protects against sun damage, boosts the immune system with its beta-carotene, zinc and selenium, is high in fiber, promotes weight loss, improves vision, and prevents heart disease.

Also, read about the benefits of turmeric in this article I wrote for EcoSalon.com. It’s potent stuff!

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add olive oil, diced garlic clove, turmeric, coriander, cumin, and salt. Mix for 1 minute. This enhances the flavor of the spices. Add the broccoli and carrots to the saucepan. Add 1/2 cup of water and cover the saucepan with a lid and let sit for 5 minutes.
