Nourishing Vegan Kale and Spinach Curry

We all know it’s good to get as many greens in our diet as possible but lets be honest, sometimes it’s darn hard work. This Nourishing Vegan Kale and Spinach Curry is an easy way to up your daily quota.

Feel free to add whatever protein to it that you fancy. Some crispy baked tofu if you’re vegan or some chicken or salmon if you follow more of an AIP, keto, Paleo or Whole30 diet.

I served mine with cauliflower rice. You can learn how to make my super fluffy Cauliflower Rice here (you don’t have to add the roasted vegetables) or Coconut Cauliflower Rice.

This Nourishing Vegan Kale and Spinach Curry is ready in super quick time. Just 20 minutes, so perfect for those of you looking for an easy low-carb, grain free dinner recipe. For an AIP version, you can leave out the paprika.
