  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup jasmine rice
  • pinch of pink himalayan sea salt 

Method:

For the Ginger Garlic Carrot Jasmine Rice - bring the pot to medium heat - add your coconut oil, until melted all the way and then add your garlic, ginger and salt - give that a good stir and mix well - coating everything nicely.  Toss in your grated carrots in next and give that mix - after that has been cooking for a bit - ADD 1 cup of water and bring to a simmer - once you see the water forming bubbles and is about to start boiling add in your jasmine rice and give it a stir for a moment - lower heat to the lowest setting and COVER with a lid - next you will prepare your curry - the rice will be ready in 20 minutes or so - as long as it's on the lowest setting you'll be fine and your rice will be fluffy and pillowy.

Ok, now it's time to make that curry!

In a big pot, turn the heat to medium high heat - add your coconut oil and throw in all your spices and give that a good stir - coating and covering all the spices with the oil.  Cutting or tearing apart the cauliflower with your hand - add cauliflower to the pot and after a few minutes allowing the cauliflower to heat up - add your vegetable stock (or water) to the pot.  Bring to a boil - the add your tomatoes - lower heat to lowest setting and COVER with a lid.  Allow this to cook up to one hour - just before you turn the heat off (about 2 minutes before) add your coconut milk to the curry and give it a good stir and mixing all ingredients.  You can leave the lid off and allow the curry to settle.

This curry is good for about a month or two in the freezer, but I guarantee it won't last that long.  It's even better the next day - try it!
