Everyone needs a weeknight curry recipe. This healthy coconut red curry is a great dish to start with!
We love all curry at our house! Red, panang, yellow, green, you name it. Red curry is generally a moderately spiced and versatile curry. It’s typically made with several red chilies, which gives it a bold and spicy flavor. Ingredients for the curry base include coriander, cumin, red bell pepper, red chile, lemongrass, and ginger. The spices are full of antioxidants and provide health benefits.
Pro Tip: Instead of just using cauliflower rice, mix cauliflower rice in with jasmine rice. Adding in the cauliflower rice gives you a boost of vitamin C and fiber, not to mention another veggie serving!
