Slow Cooker Coconut Chicken Curry ( Gluten & Dairy-free) 

Print¬†Friendly 

Description:
Breaking out the trusted slow cooker is a ritual that makes me tingly all over. Cozy nights filled with nourishing, hearty dishes are the best way to to survive and thrive through the winter. Since this tends to be a hectic time of year, the convenience of cooking once and eating two or three (or four) times is not just helpful, it's downright necessary. Save yourself from succumbing to the take-out routine and make some curry instead.

I absolutely love this dish because it is delicious and nutritious. There are so many health benefits in here I don't even know where to begin. This curry contains a nice dose of Turmeric, which is a natural anti-inflammatoy and has been linked to improved cognitive function. The coconut oil and coconut milk are great sources of healthy fats. You'll get a heaping helping of protein from the chicken and almonds, plus the cleansing benefits of cilantro. Yum.


Ingredients:
3 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken
6 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 red onion, chopped
2 red peppers, chopped
2 tsp. fresh ginger, grated
1 Anaheim chili, diced (seeds removed)
1 cup of full fat coconut milk
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 tbsp. tomato paste
1 cup bone broth (Low sodium)
2 tbsp. Turmeric
1 tbsp. cumin
2 tsp. chili powder
4 tbsp. Garam Masala
Fresh Parsley for garnish (chopped)
Toasted, slivered almonds for garnish
Salt + pepper to taste


Directions:
Add all ingredients except chicken to your slow cooker and give it a good stir to combine all the flavors.
Add chicken and spoon the sauce over it. Make sure everything is equally distributed throughout the pot
Cook on high for 4 hours.
Serve it up, top with parsley and almonds (this is great over cauliflower rice).
Enjoy!


Servings: Serves 6 (or 2 people, 3 times)

Gluten-Free: Amaranth, Quinoa and Dark Chocolate Cake
Category: Gluten-Free
Description: Amaranth: This Central American ancient food has been cultivated for 8000 years, and is comparable to rice. Considered a grain, it is actually a seed. Amaranth is especially high in lysine, an essential amino acid most grains lack. Plus it is gluten free!
Amaranth is a pseudocereal that has been consumed as a grain since ancient times; the tiny buff-colored amaranth spheres were important in both Aztec cuisine and culture. Amaranth grains are rich in high-quality protein and minerals, and are naturally gluten-free.
The health benefits of Amaranth are that it is rich in Iron, Manganese, Magnesium, Potassium, and Phosphorus. It can be used ground as flour, cooked as a cereal, sprinkled on foods or even used as a thickener for soups. To cook, combine 1 part raw seeds to 2 1/2 parts liquid. Simmer 18-20 minutes, until soft. Amaranth may be toasted like pop corn and mixed with honey to make a treat called " alegria" which means "joy" in Spanish.
