In a 'Curry' Bowl

DSCF5821.png

This is a yummy curry recipe. You can have it as naked bowl (no wrap), taco, burrito, quesadilla or on a bed of greens with rice and some nacho chips garnish. This is another quick recipe where I can toss everything in a pan and let the juices simmer. 

Ingredients

  • 150g of grounded beef (you can also break down a black bean veggie burger or buy vegan beef)
  • 1 bag frozen veggies (mine had black beans, barley, edamame, broccoli and red peppers) Sometimes when I'm short in time or if I don't have fresh groceries, frozen produce is my go to!
  • 1/2 yam, cubed
  • Salad leaves: I used baby spinach for this recipe
  • 3 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 green onions (chopped including white part)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of chopper ginger
  • 1 tsp cornstarch 
  • Coconut Oil
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp curry spice blend: Mine was the India Spice Blend from Acanela I got this from one of my Causebox charity box a while back. They are a social enterprise that focuses on connecting artisans in developing countries with opportunities to monetize their skills. 
  • Optional: Nachos or pita chips for garnish
  • Optional: Wraps for taco or burrito

Instructions

  1. In a pan, heat oil in medium. Add in ground beef and fry until golden. Stirring often and adding salt and pepper to taste. Once it's cooked remove from pan
  2. Add more oil into the pan if it's all dry. Warm in medium heat. Stir in green onion, garlic and ginger. Cook until brown.
  3. Add in yam pieces, stir and add a splash of water. Cover for 2 minutes
  4. Add in curry and mix 
  5. Next, pour in your veggies. If they're frozen add another splash of water and cook covered for around 5 minutes. If they're fresh cook cover for 3-5 minutes, add a little bit of water depending on the veggies you have.
  6. Remove cover, stir in the cooked meat and let it absorb the veggie juices. Around 1-2 minutes
  7. If there's too much liquid, remove a bit of it around 3 tbsps and mix it with 1 tsp of cornstarch. Pour into the rest of mixture to thicken 
  8. Voila! Serve on a bed of greens, with rice or in a taco or burrito shell.

Taco bout' versatile! :P
