Turmeric Bean Curry

Indian food is a firm favourite of mine and my family, however curry can often leave me feeling really full and bloated and is often crazily high in calories. This is ok as a one off but I like having indian food regularly so came up with a slightly healthier option which is packed with goodness to make you feel amazing afterwards instead of lethargic!

Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties and gives this curry its amazing colour, this is also Vegan so caters for a variety of dietary requirements making it a great dinner party dish.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tins of beans (it’s up to you which you use, Haricot, Cannellini and Borlotti work well!)
  • 1 large red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 pack of green beans, trimmed and chopped in half
  • 1 bag of baby spinach or half a bag of kale
  • 1 tablespoon of turmeric
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tin of coconut milk
  • Optional: any other veggies you’d like to add!

 

Method:

  1. Heat a little coconut oil in a pan and fry off the onion for 5-7 minutes until softened then add the garlic for a further minute
  2. Add the beans, seasoning and spices and mix well until everything is coated in the spices, leave to cook for a couple of minutes
  3. Shake the coconut milk well then open the tin and empty the contents into the pan with the green beans, mix well and leave for 20-30 minutes on a low heat
  4. Add the spinach or kale and leave for a couple of minutes until it wilts, mix into the curry well and serve!
