I thought it was a little difficult to use the kohlrabi from the past weeks of the CSA, but look at the one from this week!!! It is literally as big as my face!!!
I came across this curry recipe on Pinterest and thought it looked interesting for using up my two massive bags of peas from this week’s CSA. Of course, I didn’t have potatoes or coconut milk, so I went down my own little path to create a stir fry that had the curry flavors.
It actually turned out really well! Perfect for a summer evening. And for using up a lot of CSA vegetables.
Also, I know my food photography needs tons of improvement, but between work, watching Caleb, and home improvements, I just haven’t found the time. Sorry for any eyesores. But at least now you can use that kohlrabi 😉
1/2 onion, chopped
1/4 cup green onion tops, diced
1 cup peas, de-shelled
1 small kohlrabi (or 1/4 of your kohlrabi if it’s the size of your face), peeled and diced
1/2 small head broccoli, chopped
1 small hot pepper
1 chicken breast, diced
3 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp minced garlic
2 tbsp fish sauce
1/2 tsp cardamom
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground ginger
2 tbsp curry powder
1 tsp brown sugar
3/4 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup 2% milk (could also use whole milk or heavy cream)
2 cups rice, cooked in chicken broth instead of water
- Heat coconut oil in wok until liquid, then add onions and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes.
- Add peas, kohlrabi, broccoli, and pepper. Cook for 10 minutes.
- Push vegetables to outside of pan and place diced chicken in the center of the wok. Cook until chicken is almost done, about 6 minutes. Stir pan so that the chicken is dispersed throughout the vegetables.
- Add fish sauce, cardamom, salt, ginger, curry powder, and brown sugar. Stir contents of pan well to coat all vegetables and meat with spices.
- Add chicken broth and milk. Cook for an additional 10 minutes or until most liquid is absorbed.
- Serve over cooked rice – the best flavor comes from rice boiled in chicken broth instead of water.
Note: You can use TONS of different vegetables in this recipe. I planned on adding squash, but it turns out that I didn’t get to it in time from last week’s CSA (R.I.P., squash). Have fun using whatever comes in your CSA! 🙂
