Low FODMAP Cauliflower, Coconut & Peanut Curry
Don't know about you, but sometimes I want a big bowl of comfort food!
This cauliflower curry is my one of my go to comfort meals .....and best part is that it takes just a few minutes to make. Its very mild, easy on the tummy... but extra yummy!
I made this curry from some purple and white cauliflower floret left overs, but you could easily throw in any vegetable you like. I often make a version of this curry using Romanesco (broccoflower) which is just as good!
UHT coconut milk and canned peas keep this curry Low FODMAP. Hing powder and green scallion tips take the place of onion. Hing comes from the resin of fennel plants and has a strong sulphur odour that fades to a pleasant flavour during cooking. It is used in ayurvedic medicine to aid digestion and reduce gas. If you've never cooked with hing powder before, maybe start with 1 teaspoon and adjust according to taste.
A generous serving of coriander, lemon juice and black pepper heaped on just before serving make this curry extra special.
If you decide to give this recipe a go, please share your thoughts, pictures and recipe tweaks. Good luck!
