Coconut Vegetable Curry with fried tofu, jasmin rice, mango salsa, cucumber raita, condiments: chopped cilantro, toasted coconut, toasted almonds

 

Method
Place sweet potatoes in a pot and cook until just tender. Place a wide bottom pan over medium high heat. Add sunflower oil and let get hot. Add fenugreek and let sauté for 2-3 minutes. You will smell it. Then it is time to add some of the fresh basil, ginger and garlic. Cook until you can smell the ginger or garlic. Add cumin, coriander, garam masala, and 1/3 of the curry. Again, cook until you can smell the new spices. Stir in onions and carrots, cooking 10-15 minutes or until the carrots just begin to get soft. Add another 1/3 of the curry powder. Stir in salt.
When the veggies are hot add lime juice, honey and tamari. Allow the liquid to come to a boil and cook for 3-5 minutes. Add bell peppers, zucchini and yellow squash. Stir well, so all the veggies get covered with the yummy juice, and cover the pot. Cook covered 5 minutes or until squash is starting to soften. Remove cover. Add last of curry powder and strained cooked sweet potatoes and coconut milk. Add salt if needed. Cook until flavors come together. Readjust seasonings to your taste. Eat Well!

Intentions
This dish is about building flavors. The entire cooking of the dish should take 30-40 minute. This dish is good practice at using your senses, and listening to when you are guided to add a certain ingredient. If you were to add all the ingredients at once the dish would still be yummy. Play with it using your inner knowing, trusting you will be guided along the way. As with your meditations, so with your life.

Method
Drain and rinse seeds and nuts. Combine all ingredients in a food processor or Vitamix and process until smooth. Adjust seasonings or try some fresh herbs. Serve with vegetables or in a salad.

Intentions
Soaking nuts and seeds allows the enzymes to wake up, and allows our body to assimilate them easier. If in a pinch you don’t have time to soak them, it will still be good. With seed spread get wild and crazy. Flavor them like your favorite chicken salad or tuna salad. The sky is the limit.
