Vegan Curry Dinner Ingredients
Coconut oil is actually very good for us. In tropical climates like Polynesia, Sri Lanka, and the Yucatan where they have a diet high in coconut oil, the people are healthier, have less heart disease, cancer, and colon problems than unsaturated fat eaters. It is now accepted that there is good cholesterol and there are good saturated fats. It is a good oil to use in making this vegan curry. Learn the 12 benefits of Coconut Oil, this newly declared an Amazing SuperFood.
Kirkland Signature Cold Pressed Unrefined Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, 84 Ounce is something I always have on had for cooking and baking.
One of the main ingredients in this vegan curry is the beautiful eggplant is loved for its vibrant purple color and unique pleasant bitter taste. It is also full of nutrition and health benefits.
Eggplants contain a rare, unique antioxidant called nasunin which is exceptionally beneficial. It is a powerful antioxidant neutralizing free radicals that can cause damage to our living cells and tissues. Nasunin gives the eggplant its dark purple coloring which protects it from environmental damage particularly from the sun.
Many people think green peas are just a poor man’s meat or a cheap restaurant side-dish that puts ‘green’ on your plate. However, peas are really little powerhouses of nutrition that are a boon for your health and the whole planet.
Potatoes are more than comfort food; they are in fact full of nutrients and have many health benefits. We mostly think of potatoes as a fattening food but according to studies, we have learned that you can lose weight eating them. It may surprise you to learn that they are a superfood. They are surprisingly good for us. They make the vegan curry very filling.
Green beans are full of so many health benefits. They are a tasty healthy option to add to a meal. Many of us grow them in our garden so we can eat them fresh in the summer. The really good news is that this superfood has health benefits from helping lose weight to preventing the spread of HIV to lowering the risk of cancer.
Green beans add a beautiful tasty green to the vegan curry.
Red pepper is my favourite pepper. I think that is because it is sweeter. The peppers have 2 times as much vitamin C as oranges; red and yellow peppers have 4 times as much. Research has shown, sweet red peppers can activate thermogenesis and increases our metabolism without increasing our heart rate and blood pressure like the hot peppers do. Great addition to a vegan curry.
WHO recognizes that Onions help relieve symptoms such as coughs, congestion asthma, and respiratory infections. Onions are full of protective phytonutrients, vitamins, trace minerals, quercetin (an important flavonoid), chromium, and unique anti-inflammatory nutrients.
To get the most health benefits from Garlic, let it sit for a minimum of 5 minutes, after cutting and before eating or cooking. Waiting for 5 – 10 minutes allows the health-promoting allicin to form. If you do not let it sit, allicin is never formed, so it is worth the wait.
Sometimes it is easier to use some Organic Freeze Dried Garlic with no chopping and peeling. This BioPure garlic is certified organic and sustainably grown on high-quality soils in northern Canada.
Turmeric with Ginger is arguably one of the most powerful herbs on the planet. Curcumin specifically, one of the primary compounds in turmeric powder, has been reported to be one of the most advantageous herbs.
Ginger is a wonderful herb superfood full of health benefits. Spicy aromatic ginger adds a unique flavour to meals and beverages. The many wonderful health benefits of ginger also cause the cells of my body to glow with gratitude.
“Many studies in cell culture have shown that ginger is an anti-inflammatory,” says researcher Suzanna M. Zick, ND, University of Michigan Medical School, Ann Arbor.
Himalayan Salt is actually good for you! 100% NATURAL PINK & CERTIFIED: Sherpa Pink Himalayan Salt is is Kosher Certified, Non-GMO, and does not contain any MSG, Soy, Gluten, Dairy, or anti-caking agents.
