Green Curry Eggplant and Mushroom Sauce

The main ingredients in Green Curry Sauce are coconut milk and green curry paste which is usually made up of lemongrass, jalapeno, shallots, garlic, ginger, coriander, basil, cumin, pepper, peanut oil and fish sauce. We like to experiment with homemade green curry sauces, since we don't always have the ingredients needed. Green curry is full of flavor and is very healthy. There are a variety of spices and herbs in curry that are beneficial to your health, including reducing inflammation of the joints. We like to prepare our green curry sauce raw- in order to have the enzymes it provides with coconut milk. Check out our latest green curry sauce recipe with eggplant and homemade coconut milk! We poured our sauce over a bed of cauliflower 'rice' -Very yummy.

Lemon And Thyme Artichokes

Artichokes protect the liver from damage by stimulating the production of bile in the liver, that aids in the process of digestion. They are high in antioxidant and phytonutrients that protect and repair cells from free radical damage or oxidation! Adding herbs and spices to foods are beneficial to our health. Thyme contains beneficial antibacterial properties that help prevent contamination of foods. Lemon and Thyme Artichokes are healthy and very tasty! We found that steaming is the best way to cook them. Try them out with our green curry sauce made with homemade coconut milk. Enjoy!

Simple Vegetarian 'Meatballs'

Since we've stopped having meat in our diet, we make our own version of vegetarian 'meat' dishes. Three main ingredients we use are mushrooms, eggplant and lentils. Lentils are a great source of B vitamins which are important for the healthy function of the nervous, digestive and immune systems! It is important to pre-soak lentils 24 hours prior to cooking in order to release enzyme inhibitors. Our latest recipe is Vegetarian 'Meatballs' - tastes great with our zucchini 'spaghetti' dishes. Give it a try!
