Healthy Recipe Wednesday: Coconutty Beef Curry

Today’s healthy recipe comes from 100 Day Pantry by Jan Jackson. Jan has put together a a delicious way to stock and use the food in your pantry so that in the case of a disaster–natural, civil, or personal–you can know that there is food you can eat AND you will know how to prepare it. Also the recipes are simple enough (no chopping or frying) that your kids can even put them together. One of the ideas she points out in the introduction that I hadn’t thought of before was, in the case of an emergency, to cook your rice and pasta in broth instead of water. That way you save your precious water for drinking and other necessary things. There are other tips she shares, but I’m sure you’re anxious for the recipe, so without further ado:

Coconutty Beef Curry (Serves 4-6)Healthy dinner recipes, food, pantry

1¼ cups rice

1 (14-oz.) can beef broth
1 (13.5-oz.) can coconut milk
1 (10- to 15-oz.) can beef
1 (15-oz.) can diced potatoes, drained
1 (15-oz.) can carrots, drained
1 (15-oz.) can peas, drained

2 Tbsp. flour
1 Tbsp. curry powder
¼ tsp. red pepper flakes, optional
1 envelope onion soup mix
2 Tbsp. dried cilantro (or parsley) for garnish

Cook rice in broth in separate pot. Stir flour into coconut milk in pot. Add remaining ingredients except cilantro. Heat through, stirring occasionally, until flour cooks and thickens the juices a bit. Serve over rice. Garnish with cilantro.
