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

  • 5 med. leek, fresh, organic
  • 1 bch. kale, any variety, fresh, organic
  • 2 tbs. coconut oil, raw, extra-virgin, organic
  • 3 garlic, fresh, organic
  • 1 tsp. curry powder, organic
  • 14 1/2 fl oz. coconut milk, unsweetened, full-fat, organic, canned
  • sea salt, unrefined, & fresh ground pepper, organic to taste
  • 2 oz. cashews, raw, organic

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.
