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!

Healthy Coconut Red Curry Nutrition Info:

Coconut Milk: Aside from being a good source of medium-chain fatty acids, coconut milk has a few assorted vitamins and minerals. If you are looking to reduce calories and fat content, they make “light” versions! Surprisingly, coconut milk and oil are considered a saturated fat source. Saturated fats are okay to consume in moderation. Undeniably, I love the creaminess it adds to curry dishes.

Asparagus: is a great source of vitamin K and B vitamins, asparagus is high in in anti-inflammatory nutrients. This veggie provides vitamin C, vitamin E, and the minerals copper and iron. It’s a low calorie and high fiber food!

Cauliflower Rice: One cup of cooked cauliflower provides 73 to 77 percent of the recommended daily amount of vitamin C, 19 percent of the daily vitamin K amount and 8 percent of the daily manganese amount, according to World’s Healthiest Foods.

Ginger: Ginger is a popular spice and an amazing way to flavor food. It is high in gingerol, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
