Curried Carrots and Radishes Recipe- Vegan, Paleo
For the most part I'd say my kids aren't picky eaters, but one of my kids refuses to eat any zucchini and most refuse to eat the following veggies cooked: tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, greens, mushrooms, etc... so when I am trying to come up with ideas of cooked veggie dishes, I'm somewhat limited. I was trying to figure out a recipe for a curried vegetable dish that my kids would agree to eat and that was made with things I actually had in the house, and I had carrots and radishes, so decided to come up with a curry recipe based on them. I made this twice so far and really enjoyed it. The first time I made it my kids really enjoyed it, but the second time I made it too spicy, so they didn't. If you don't have radishes at home, feel free to just substitute in more carrots.
1 tablespoon oil (I used coconut oil)
1 small onion
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
3 extra large carrots grated- 4-5 cups
1 cup sliced radishes (or another cup of grated carrots)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon turmeric
1/8 teaspoon hot pepper flakes, or less, to taste
1 cup water
1. Heat up the onions and mustard seeds in the oil until the onions are starting to get golden and the mustard seeds are getting toasted.
2. Add the rest of the spices and carrots and radishes, and saute for 5 minutes or so.
3. Add the water and cover, letting it cook until the vegetables are fully softened.
4. Serve hot or cold.
Are your kids picky when it comes to certain veggies? Which veggies won't they eat?
Are you a fan of curries? What type of curry do you make often? Does this look like a recipe you'd make?
