Tips

Tips: 

Add cubes of tofu to curry for added protein.

Sauté 1/2 lb (250 g) sliced mushrooms in 2 tbsp (30 mL) coconut oil until golden brown and tender; stir in 8 nuggets of Europe’s Best Spinach® and cook until heated through. Add to curry for a more substantial meal option.

Substitute tomato sauce for coconut milk if desired.
