Curry Quinoa with Kale and Roasted Cauliflower

Curry Quinoa and Kale Cauliflower Bowl - This dish is a great vegetarian or vegan meal for Meatless Monday. Made with a variety of coconut products (coconut milk, coconut chips, coconut oil and coconut vinegar). The Bewitchin' Kitchen I love to try new recipes that feature old and new favorite ingredients. Right now I do a lot of cooking with coconut oil, but after making this Curry Quinoa with Kale and Roasted Cauliflower I may have a few new regulars in my kitchen. Coconut products are my favorite, but have you ever heard of coconut vinegar? Here's a delicious recipe for Curry Quinoa with Kale and Roasted Cauliflower If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed I received a delivery I was rather excited about a few weeks ago. The delivery was from Grace Foods and contained a few coconut products that I was looking forward to trying out. I’m all for healthy foods that taste great and right now I’m all about the coconut. As I said before, I do a lot of cooking with coconut oil (I have even replaced my coffee creamer with coconut oil). Did you know that coconut oil has been endorsed by leading medical and health experts as a food that can help protect us from heart disease? There are a number of nutritional benefits of using coconut products in our cooking (fibre, protein and good fat) and not only does coconut help us feel better but it also helps us look better (there are a number of beneficial uses for hair, skin and nails).  Add in the fact that it can help fight off infections, and we have a superfood that tastes good and is easy to incorporate into our everyday life. Pouring Grace Coconut Oil over cauliflower before roasting makes a delicious vegetable dish I used a number of organic coconut products from Grace Foods in this Curry Quinoa recipe. Including:

  • Grace Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
  • Grace Organic Coconut Milk
  • Grace Organic Coconut Vinegar
  • Grace All Natural Coconut Chips

Grace Coconut Milk mixed with quinoa tastes amazing. Check out this recipe for Curry Quinoa and Kale Cauliflower Bowl | The Bewitchin' Kitchen It was easy to incorporate the coconut products by doing a few simple swaps:

  • Organic Virgin Coconut Oil for Olive Oil
  • Coconut Milk for 1 cup of water

Coconut Chips - seriously addictive and a great alternative for a healthy snack for your sweet tooth I also added some new-to-me ingredients to the Curry Quinoa dish: All Natural Coconut Chips and Organic Coconut Vinegar. A word of caution: the Coconut Chips are highly addictive and are heaven in a bag. Do not sample them before garnishing as you will eat half the bag yourself and feel shame. Curry Quinoa Kale and Roasted Cauliflower - This dish is a great vegetarian or vegan meal for Meatless Monday. Made with a variety of coconut products (coconut milk, coconut chips, coconut oil and coconut vinegar). The Bewitchin' Kitchen In the end you will have this amazing recipe from Curry Quinoa with Kale and Roasted Cauliflower. It’s a great vegetarian meal to have on hand for “meatless Monday”. It’s filling and chocked full of superfoods (coconut, kale, quinoa, curry).

  7. sounds interesting, I like everything but the quinoa, but then last time I had it i don’t know if I made it right

    • I usually do 1/2 c quinoa to 1 c water. Bring to a boil, then turn the heat to a simmer and put a lid on it. I let that go for 15 mins, check on it and if there isn’t really any liquid left I give it a good stir and let it sit to fluff up for 5 minutes or so.

      If it’s the flavor you don’t like, cooking it with chicken broth and spices can help too!

    • Hey Ronald,

      Quinoa (pronounced Keen-wah) is a grain that has more fibre and protein then say – rice. It’s an ancient grain and classified as a “superfood” there are a number of benefits and it’s great for those who can’t digest wheat products, rice, corn or gluten.

  44. Definitely a curry night over here!!

  45. So healthy! I’m definitely making this.

  46. sounds very good and a really healthy meal thanks for sharing , i wanna try it out 🙂

  47. I love both quinoa and kale and this sounds like a delicious way to change it up!
