Leeks & Greens with Coconut Milk from River Cottage Vegetable Every Day, in England


    5 med. leek, fresh, organic

    1 bch. kale

    2 tbsp. coconut oil

    3 garlic

    1 tsp. curry powder

    14 1/2 fl oz. canned coconut milk

    sea salt & black pepper to taste

    2 oz. cashews


Cut the leeks into 1cm slices on the diagonal. If using greens, shred into 1cm ribbons & set aside. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium-low heat & sweat the garlic for a couple of minutes, being careful not to let it burn. Add the leeks & saute for a few minutes, then add the curry powder or paste & cook, stirring occasionally, for another couple of minutes, until the leeks are becoming tender but still have a bit of bite. Add the greens, if using & sweat down for 3 minutes or so until wilted but still slightly crunchy. Pour in the coconut milk & heat through, letting it bubble for just a minute. Serve at once, sprinkled with peanuts or cashews if you like.
