Delicious Curried Peas Recipe- Vegan, Gluten Free, Sugar Free
It's past my bedtime, but I didn't want to leave you without a post for today. So, without preamble, here's a yummy curried pea recipe I invented myself when I decided to make an Indian meal for myself and a friend but didn't really have much variety by way of veggies with which to work, but I did have peas. The recipe came out delicious. Hope you like it as much as I did. It is vegan, gluten free, dairy free, grain free, sugar free, GAPS legal, etc...
2 tablespoons oil (I used palm, but any non strongly flavored oil would work for this)
1 large onion
3 cloves garlic
6 cardamom pods
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried ginger
1/2 cup coconut milk (I use homemade coconut milk)
1- 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 cups frozen peas (~1 lb bag of peas)
1. Chop the onions and mince the garlic.
2. Saute onions and garlic in oil. When starting to get golden, add the cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, mustard, cumin, and ginger, and cook for 2-3 minutes.
3. Add the tomatoes, coconut milk, salt, and peas.
4. Cook covered until the tomatoes have completely fallen apart and the peas are fully cooked.
Have you ever had curried peas before? Does this look like a recipe you'd try?
