My family really loves curry dinners. Often times I use what's in the fridge to create a tasty dinner meal. Tonight I used leftover turkey and vegetables from my freezer to cr8 this amazing curry dinner. My wonderful hubby, Coach Dean will make some cauliflower rice to serve alongside. I provided that recipe as well.

Cr8 Curry Dinners

  • 4 cups chicken or turkey
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 carrots,diced
  • 1 butternut squash, peeled and cubed
  • 1 bell pepper,diced
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms (that way no one knows they are there)
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • curry paste to taste, I used about 2 Tablespoons red curry paste
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil

Heat the coconut oil in a deep pan, saute the onions, peppers, carrots, and mushrooms until soft. Add in the butternut squash and the tomatoes. Cook for about 20 minutes until the squash is soft. Slowly add in the coconut milk and curry paste. I taste the broth to get just the right amount of curry flavor. Stir in the turkey or chicken until hot. Serve over Cauliflower Rice.

The variations are endless. Sweet potato can be substituted for the squash. If you are not a fond of mushroom or any other veggie - don't add them in. Put in ones you would like. Fine chopped spinach would look amazing in this dish. Green curry tends to be a bit spicier so add with caution.

The cauliflower rice recipe is below. Keep reading. 

Cauliflower Rice

  • ½ head of cauliflower, grated (I run it through a food processor)
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil

    Heat 1-2 tbsp. of olive oil in a large pan and start to sauté the grated cauliflower over medium heat. Add the chicken stock. Continue sautéing, stirring, until the cauliflower is al dente. Don’t cook it too long or it will turn to mush. I estimate this takes 5-7 minutes, but just taste it as you go and pull it off the heat when it’s done.
