vegetarian coconut curry w. black rice

April 9, 2014 § 1 Comment


also known as vegetarian coconut curry with forbidden rice with the forbidden meaning that it was at one time reserved for only the emperor of china, as to ensure his health and longevity. the star ingredient in this dish is the coconut milk which yields the perfect creamy smooth sauce. i would definitely recommend keeping this meal tucked away in your arsenal of recipes, so easy and so delicious.

ingredients: (serves 4)
• 3 small yukon gold potatoes cut into bite-sized pieces
• 3 stalks asparagus cut into bite-sized pieces
• 1 small yellow onion, diced
• 3 cloves or so of garlic, minced
• handful of frozen broccoli, chopped

• 1 can organic lite coconut milk
• salt and cracked black pepper
• cinnamon, a couple dashes
• cardamom, a couple dashes
• sunflower seeds for garnish
fukujinzuke for garnish (optional)
• 1/2 cup black rice

boil 1 cup of water, add the black rice and 1/4 cup of the canned coconut milk and simmer for about 25 to 30 minutes until fully cooked. set aside. in a large cooking pan add the coconut oil with the onions, garlic, carrots and ginger. season with salt and pepper and saute until translucent and until the onions are slightly caramelized. add the potatoes with 1 cup of water, bring to a boil and lower to a simmer, cook for about 10 to 15 minutes or so until the potatoes have softened. add in the broccoli, asparagus, beans, brown sugar, curry bar, cinnamon, cardamom and the remaining coconut milk and cook on medium low until the vegetables are fork tender and the sauce is bubbling and has slightly thickened. serve the vegetable curry sauce over the hot black rice. garnish with sunflower seeds and fukujinzuke, serve immediately and enjoy!
