I thoroughly enjoy eating curries. They can be quite easy and quick to make, and you can cover many of the food groups in just one dish. I got inspired to make this dish after I ate something similar at a local restaurant. It’s something that I’ve eaten there a few times, and what I love most about it is that it never quite tastes the same. I learned why this is after my last visit when I tried desperately to get the chef to reveal his recipe. He said he had nothing for me. The base ingredients of eggplants and mushrooms always remain the same, but as for the rest, well it just depends on what he has most readily available. Anyways, after a few attempts, here is my rendition of his eggplant mushroom curry.
Contrary to many curry recipes and unlike most of those found inside the cookbook, this curry doesn’t contain any meat or fish. It’s still very filling though and contains good amounts of good fats from the coconut milk. Mushrooms are especially great at giving a meaty texture to the dish. You can of course choose to add meat to it, but it tastes great on its own. Considering that protein is very often overrated and that the best macronutrients to eat in large quantities are saturated and monounsaturated fat as well as healthy non-toxic sources of carbohydrate, it’s a healthy choice to eat meals without meat from time to time. Animal protein is healthy, but we don’t need that much for optimal function and consuming more then what’s needed can be counterproductive. Of course, if you’re on a ketogenic diet, you’ll need more animal protein to cover for the needed glucose. For a more in-depth look at the optimal macronutrient ratios to consume, refer to my article on the question of macronutrient ratios.
The following Paleo curry recipe is very quick to prepare and tastes absolutely amazing. The blend of vegetables and spices seems to be a match made in heaven and you’ll see why when you’ll taste the final dish.
Serve on its own or over spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles.
