Antioxidants

 I also noticed that a lot of thai green curries have fish in them. So make sure to check your thai green curry paste before! This is dairy-free, gluten-free and cruelty-free!


Ingredients (Serves 2) 

-1 x cauliflower (98p)
-1 x bag of fresh or frozen stir-fry vegetables (£1)
-1 x jar of green Thai curry paste (97p)
-1 x tin of coconut milk (89p)
-1 x tin of chickpeas (54p)

Total price per person- £2.19


Method

Pop your frozen stir-fry veg into a pan with a bit of coconut oil (or any vegan oil you have). Once thawed add the chickpeas and cook for about 5 minutes.Add 2/3 tablespoons of thai paste to the veg and stir along with the coconut milk. Then allow to simmer.

Whilst simmering your curry, cut the florets of the cauliflower into small rice sized pieces. Do not blend unless you have a trusty food processor which doesn’t over blend your cauliflower into a pulp! Pop the cauliflower pieces into a microwavable bowl and microwave for 5-7 minutes. Check on it every 2 minutes and stir. Alternatively, you could add salt, paprika or cumin for a wilder taste. Once done throw it in a bowl and scoff it down you!
