- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 cup finely chopped onion
- 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
- 1 teaspoon minced ginger
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 3 cups sliced mushrooms
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 1 cup broccoli florets, cut into small pieces
- 1 cup chopped kale
- 1 can (15 ounces) coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons curry paste (Massaman yellow curry or red Thai curry)
- Juice of 1 lime
- Sea salt, to taste
- Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
In a medium saucepan, add the coconut oil and set over medium-high heat. Add the onions, ginger and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the mushrooms to the pot and cook until they start to release their liquid and are soft, about 5 minutes. Add the peas, broccoli, and kale to the pot and stir a few times, cooking another 1 to 2 minutes more.
Add the coconut milk, curry paste, and lime juice to the pot and bring the stew to a low boil. Cover, reduce to a simmer, and cook for 20-30 minutes, until the vegetables are very soft, and the stew is slightly thickened. Then add cilantro, lime juice, and salt and pepper to taste, and serve. Serve over jasmine rice or cauliflower rice.
