Gimme Gimme that good ol’ fall time feelin’! This delicious Paleo Chicken Curry with Cauliflower and Sweet potatoes is no joke folks! It is downright INCREDIBLE. Adapted and Inspired by the ever-so-talented Abbey’s Kitchen this gluten-free, one pot meal has become one of my favourites! Ginger, curry powder, cumin, coriander and cayenne spices are all what make this Indian dish BURST with flavour. Add in your veggies and some lean meat and VOILA she will appear before you! The Goddess of all bowls! Make sure that tongue is ready!!!
Back in the day I was never a curry person, well technically I didn’t know if I was a curry person or not because I never truly gave the spice a try. My mom didn’t use much curry in any of her homemade dishes as my dad wasn’t a fan, and going out to eat for Indian food wasn’t as popular as it is now-a-days. So long story short what Im trying to get at is I totally had no idea what I was missing out on! Now cravings for curry happen on the regular and so when I noticed Abbey’s recipe a few months ago on my insta feed I knew I just HAD to give her a try.
The very first time I tried it I went exactly as per the recipe and it was lovely however I knew I wanted to incorporate some extra grains underneath the “stew” as I like to call it AND I’m not a huge fan of tomato sauce as it can be very acidic and doesn’t always play nicely with my tummy so in order to please myself in both ways I added some Organic Brown Basmati Rice underneath and opted out of the tomato sauce with a can of diced tomato’s + a tablespoon of coconut flour instead! … BINGO!
If you would prefer using the original recipe which does use a jar of tomato sauce please do! As there are many delicious brands out there that use wholesome, organic, natural ingredients in there homemade sauces and many flavourful options to choose from. I recommend the Neal Brothers line as they have been serving Canadian families with just that since 1988! You can find many of there products from mayonnaise, to kettle chips/popcorn, tomato sauces, salad dressings, and there salsa’s which (excuse my language) kick ass 🙂 truth be told!
Otherwise incorporating just 1 tablespoon of coconut flour to a can of diced tomato’s with there juices and of course Cha’s Premium Light Organic Coconut Milk will definitely not let you down and provide you with just a little lighter feel to this dish. That is why cooking up your favourite go-to grain to throw in with it will really help to soak in all of the amazing juices + spices as this dish can be a little on the hot side!

I don’t know about you guys but now that fall is here and the weather is brisk I am constantly craving warm, soothing, comfort foods that i can heat up and enjoy in a few minutes! I mean don’t get me wrong I am definitely all about food prep but with everyone’s busy lifestyles its hard to come up with the time to make a new dinner recipe each and every night. That is why one-pot, 35 minute round up, delicious meals like this one not only taste good right away but can be enjoyed for the rest of your busy work week with just a quick re-heat on the stove or in the microwave. Don’t forget to have a nice fresh sourdough or gluten-free slice of bread ready to wipe that bowl of yours clean! Dishwasher not required!
So again thanks Abbey for inspiring me to roll up my sleeves and make this masterpiece of a meal! If you happen to smell the aroma of it all from your place in Toronto just know it’s because it has become a staple fall/winter meal for myself and my husband and the consistency of me making it has forced the smell to travel all the way from Niagara!
Seriously….. go try it for yourself and I can almost promise you I won’t be the only curry addict this long winter season!
