There is nothing I love more than a beautiful bowl of comfort food at this time of year. There is just something about scooping from a steamy bowl and knowing your body is being nourished from the delicious goodness inside. Those of you who know me know that my favourite meal in the world is our lemon kale pasta broth but I have to tell you, my friends, that this dish has rivalled it. Boasting the same nutritional benefits and offering the ‘hug in a bowl’ effect I can now proudly say that I have two favourite dishes. On to the recipe… If you’re feeling run down, need a hug or simply fancy a quick easy supper then let this be your go-to. It will warm the cockles of your heart.
🎶Red and yellow and pink and green, purple and orange and blue…🎶 OK, so it doesn’t contain anything blue but when you see this beautiful dish simmering away in front of you, you will really see the rainbow in it. Now, we all know that its great to eat the rainbow. Flooding your body with a whole host of different vitamins and minerals from all of the different coloured foods. This bowl, however, taste like you’ve struck gold at the end of the rainbow too. It is so rich in flavour and texture, it is a real feast for the taste buds as well as the eyes. The gentle heat balances with the creamy coconut. The fragrant ginger works perfectly with the fresh green coriander. Everything in this bowl works so perfectly to leave you with a steaming bowl of ‘feel good’ that the whole family will enjoy. 5 from 1 vote Print One Pot Rainbow Curry This bowl tastes like you’ve struck gold at the end of the rainbow!

So, if you, like me want your kids to beg for Kale for breakfast, lunch, dinner and tea then this, my friends is the recipe for you. I was totally shocked at how delicious and easy this was to make. I kind of did it as an experiment because after failing miserably at making beetroot crisps and banana chips (that’s a whole other blog post!) I just assumed I would be popping this on my epic fail list too!! (We all have one, we all have some things that just don’t work. It doesn’t make you a bad person and I’m clearly not still completely bitter about the experience. OK!) Moving on. This recipe is thankfully, completely fail-proof. It takes a little bit of preparation time but believe me it is so utterly worth it. Now, this recipe unlike most of our dishes contains both oil and salt. I know, I know I spend most of my time preaching about why we should avoid oil, sugar and salt, then I promptly bring out a cake recipe or some salted crisps but bear with me on this one. The way we look at it is, we are mostly plant-based (always vegan […]
I have been craving so much Mediterranean food recently. Those rich tomato flavours and fragrant herbs. The comforting bowls of broth, pasta and stews. Maybe it’s the impending summer that has been getting my juices flowing but either way, it is bringing out some of the most delicious recipes from the Real Family Journey kitchen. (Even if I say so myself!) I have finally weaned myself off out Mostly Minestrone Soup and now I have a new addiction to this Mediterranean stew. This stew is light yet comforting. It has a full-bodied tomato and mushroom stock base yet it is carried gently by the perfume tones of the basil. Teamed with a crusty granary baguette you can almost imagine relaxing by the coast of the Mediterranean Sea! Ah, sigh. If only. I just wanted to explain myself a little before getting to the recipe. You may wonder why I’m asking you to use so many cooking pans but really there is method in my madness. (Most of the time!) I always choose to cook my rice and potatoes separately due to the fact that certain negative elements can leach out during the cooking process. Rice can leach out arsenic and […]
