Indulge in a culinary experience that’s as wholesome as it is delicious with this Whole Food Plant-Based (WFPB) Potato Curry. Packed with nutrient-rich ingredients, this vibrant dish offers a symphony of flavours that will tantalize your taste buds while nourishing your body.

Onion and Garlic: Both onions and garlic are rich in antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties. They also support cardiovascular health by helping to lower cholesterol levels and blood pressure.

Red Lentils: A great source of plant-based protein and fibre, red lentils help with digestion, stabilize blood sugar levels, and provide essential nutrients like iron and folate.

Tomatoes: Packed with vitamins C and K, potassium, and folate, tomatoes are also high in antioxidants like lycopene, which is linked to numerous health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer.

Potatoes: Potatoes are a good source of vitamins C and B6, manganese, phosphorus, niacin, and pantothenic acid. They also contain antioxidants and resistant starch, which benefits gut health.

Spices (Curry Powder, Cumin, Smoked Paprika, Ginger, Turmeric): These spices not only add rich flavours but also come with significant health benefits. Turmeric, especially, is known for its powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, while cumin aids digestion and is a good source of iron. Ginger aids digestion and has anti-nausea and anti-inflammatory effects.

Peas and Corn: These vegetables add fibre, vitamins, and minerals to the dish. Peas are rich in vitamins A, C, K, and folate, and corn provides B vitamins, iron, magnesium, and several antioxidants.

Plant-Based Milk: Depending on the type (almond, soy, oat, etc.), plant-based milk can add a range of nutrients, including vitamins D, E, and calcium. It also makes the dish creamy without adding cholesterol or saturated fat.

This Whole Food Plant-Based Potato Curry is not just a meal—it’s a celebration of health and flavour, a testament to the abundance of nourishing ingredients nature has to offer. With each spoonful, revel in the vibrant tastes and wholesome goodness that this dish brings to your table.

Normally you might find me behind the coding of our sites but over the years I have become much more concerned about what has been happening in the kitchen as well - families do that for all of us don't they? Background experience is in Account Management and Web Development but as my passion has grown for WFPB so has my desire to speak out.
