wholesome & easy thai Veggie curry

Conventional Thai curries are made with coconut milk. Coconut milk is a refined food, not a whole food; it lacks fiber and nutrients. This recipe is very different and unique, because it is made with dried coconut meat, a whole food. A delicious, creamy curry that goes perfectly with your brown rice.

The most important thing is to get the curry base right. You can always add the ingredients you like later.

Ingredients for 2 servings:

  • 1 head of broccoli or about 350 g / 12 oz. 

  • 2 bell peppers (not the green variety)

  • ½ head of green cabbage

  • 1 small sweet potato or about 100 g / 3-4 oz.

  • 60 g / 2 oz. of cashew nuts and/or sunflower seeds

  • 40 g / 1.5 oz. of dried shredded coconut

  • 2 dates

  • 1 heaping tbsp of Thai curry paste


  1. First, chop all the vegetables and put them aside.* Slice the carrot thinly so it will cook equally fast as the broccoli and cabbage. Chop the onion fine if you like it soft.

  2. To make the curry: Add the bell pepper to the blender, followed by the coconut, dates, sweet potato, cashews and/or sunflower seeds and the curry paste.

  3. Blend all ingredients up with as much water as needed (at least 90 sec.) to allow for a smooth and easy blend.

  4. Check consistency of curry and blend longer if not smooth enough.**

  5. For the quickest result, bring all veggies to a boil for 5-10 minutes (depending on the 'bite' you want.

  6. Disregard the cooking water (or save it for your soups:)

  7. Add the curry to the pan or wok with the vegetables.

  8. Bring everything to a boil.

  9. Cover and let it simmer for a minute.

  10. Serve with rice or rice pasta.

  11. Enjoy!


*= Putting chopped up cruciferous vegetables aside for a while, (like broccoli and cabbage, but especially broccoli) will increase the content of sulforaphane.

Sulforaphane is a compound with lots of protective abilities, in respect to certain cancers and other diseases.

**= Be careful your blender won't overheat. Some blenders don't have a built-in protection, so make sure to stop once in a while for a moment.
