Chickpea Butternut Curry with Sea Moss
Adding sea moss gel in your favorite vegan and non-vegan dishes is a great way to reap the benefits of sea moss. Made with butternut squash, kale, chickpeas, cilantro and of course sea moss! Pairing with jasmine rice and finishing with chopped cilantro and lime juice gives this dish a lovely fresh, bright flavor.
We know that smoothies and juices are the most common way these days to consume and reap the benefits of sea moss. For most of history, seaweeds were consumed in the cooking process.
I eat mainly a whole food vegan diet and I love to cook simple, nourishing, delicious stews that feel like a warm hug when you eat it. This dish is a basic curry with the bonus of Irish sea moss gel added at the last 10 minutes of the cooking time for more nutrients.
The squash can be subbed with sweet potato or pumpkin, chickpeas with red beans, and kale can be subbed with spinach, bok choy or rainbow chard. You can also sub the jasmine rice for brown rice, quinoa or noodles.
You don't taste the sea moss at all. But if you have leftovers and it gets cold, the texture of the sauce will be more gelatinous. If you reheat it, it becomes saucy again. This dish serves about 4, so the family will love it. You can also cut the ingredients in half for less people.
So let's get into this yummy bowl of goodness!
