Hiya! Hope everyone is well. How are we less than one week away from Christmas and less than two weeks away from 2017? How is it snowing one day, but 50 degrees the next? Why do I ask so many questions? Oh, yeah. Cuz I’m nosey. But I like to phrase it as I just love to learn 🙂
Welp, as the weather is mostly getting chillier, I’ve been craving more foods in broths. Soup. Ramen. Pho. Hot pot. Okay, nevermind – I always crave those year around, regardless of the weather. But I mean, in winter, it’s especially good. I mean like at least 50% better tasting in the winter. Because science. It just makes sense. Work has been picking up as everyone tries to finish deadlines before the holiday break; so I’ve been turning to my trusty Instant Pot for meals. It’s just so easy for me to be able to throw stuff in there and go back to work. I’m still trying to eat paleo during the week as much as I can because with the increasing year end holiday get-togethers with family/friends, I am
stuffing my face enjoying tasty meals with good company and when I say enjoy, I’m not eating a freaking salad and if I am, it’s with creamy dressing and fried onion strips. #yolo
Last week, my friend Meera requested me to cook a vegetarian dish. I absolutely intend to, maybe when I have more time, but when I was making a Thai curry stew today with my Instant Pot, I totally realized that my meal could very much be vegetarian and still very tasty, even if I don’t add meat. So, I wanted to share this recipe that I’ve made many many times. Of course, it’s from Michelle over at NomNomPaleo. I’ve modified the ingredients just a bit, and it still works out. I absolutely love eating this, and have ate this for like 4 straight meals in a row in a week. I apologize if it doesn’t look very appetizing, but for me, it’s seriously good stuff.
What’s awesome about this recipe is that you can pretty much add any veggie or meat you want to the curry stew. I like to eat mine with sweet potato (it thickens the curry as it disintegrates while cooking), sweet potato noodles (I am probably ODing on carbs – sweet potatoes are allowed on paleo diets), cabbage, and turkey meatballs. You can make this vegetarian by omitting the meat. You can also eat this with cauliflower rice, or if you’re not eating paleo, real rice or noodles (yum). Read on for the link to the recipe and my modifications. Bon appetit! read more “Instant Pot Paleo Thai Curry Stew”
