Alkaline Diet Recipe #110: Alkaline Root Vegetable Curry

beetroot

Vegetable curries in general are one of my favourite dishes, as they are generally very healthy and alkaline at the same time. This recipe is a little bit different, as it contains root vegetables of your choice. Feel free to choose from celeriac, carrots, parsnips and beetroot.

Root vegetables are plant roots used as vegetables. Here “root” means any underground part of the plant. They are all packed with various nutrients are a rich source of potent antioxidants and nutrients such as sodium, potassium, Vitamin C and magnesium. Beetroot for example also contains betaine, which is important for cardiovascular health.

We hope you enjoy this alkaline root vegetable curry, which has got an abundance of different flavours given by a variety of spices and herbs.

Put the chilli, ginger, garlic and onion in a blender and puree. Gently heat a splash of oil in a frying pan over a medium-low temperature and put in the spices.

    This was a delicious recipe! I’m on a total cleanse and eating only veggies for 2 weeks – so I was happy to find this!
    I skipped the grinding of the herbs (used powder format), and substituted rice milk for coconut milk. I also roasted onions and garlic first, and then also added them into the puree. It was enjoyed by my husband and my two year old as well – thank you!
