Cauliflower, cashew and black kale coconut curry

Packed with protein but with a creamy coconut sauce to make this feel naughty, this is a satisfying dish for an autumn or winter evening, or a post run recovery meal. If you’re trying to lose weight, forgo the rice and have it as a soup. If you’re training for something, eat with brown Basmati rice or, even better, quinoa which packs a more powerful protein punch.

Haven’t got all the vegetables you need? Mix and match with what you have in your fridge.

 

Serves 4

4cm ginger, peeled and chopped

4 garlic cloves

1 fresh green chilli, roughly chopped, seeds removed if you prefer less heat

Salt

Rice bran oil (which has a higher burn point)

2 large red onions, chopped

1 tbsp of tomato puree

1 1/2 tsp of ground coriander

1 1/2 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp chilli powder

1 cauliflower broken into florets

400ml coconut milk

100g cashew nuts

Two handfuls of black kale, roughly chopped

1/2 tsp garam masala

Fresh coriander, roughly chopped

Fresh lemon

Place the ginger, garlic and chilli into a food processor with the salt and whizz up. Add a little oil to help it become a paste.  Place to one side.

Fry the onions until just turning brown, add the paste and fry for 3 minutes. Next add the tomato puree, all the spices except garam masala and stir to mix.

Add the cauliflower and coat with spices, add the coconut milk and bring to the boil. Turn to simmer, put a lid on and leave to cook.

Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp of oil in a pan and fly the cashews until golden.

Finally add to the cauliflower along with kale. Sweat down and then add the garam masala. Adjust seasoning and add the coriander and a big squeeze of fresh lemon before serving. You may add water to thin the sauce out.

Body Blitz for Healthy Eating & Fit Bodies – Starts Feb 3rd

Think all juices are created equal? Think again.

While freshly made juices are packed with free radical fighting anti-oxidants and will boost your vitamin intake without the need for supplements, fruit based juices can send your blood sugar levels soaring.

The upshot of this? Feeling more hungry, and it also releases the stress  hormone cortisol.

Far better to stick to vegetable juices that pack a mean vitamin packed punch, and which won’t have the same effect as drinking a cup of sugar added tea.

If you want to get your hands on our fantastic eating plan, with options of Three In One Recipes for those who are short on time but want maximum effect, you can buy our Body Blitz plan online by choosing the button Fitbitch Style, Kit and Diet.

Alternatively, book our full Body Blitz Camp starting Monday 3rd February in Brighton and Hove and it comes included along with personal assessment pre and post camp.
