Leafy Green Curry with Mushrooms


As much as I love the Christmas season I’m not too keen on the weather that comes with it!

Having a delicious hot meal in the evening can make all the difference to your mood, especially if you are beginning to feel drained by everything that goes hand in hand with the festive season.

Leafy Green Curry with Mushrooms

This Leafy Green Curry with Mushrooms is just the thing to fill you with nutrition and satisfy your appetite at the end of your day.


To make enough for two people you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 1 tsp of coconut oil
  • ½ a tsp of turmeric
  • 1 tsp of cumin seeds
  • ¼ of a cup of fresh basil
  • 2 large tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp of fresh grated ginger
  • 1 cup of mushrooms
  • 2 cups of fresh spinach, finely chopped
  • 1 cup of kale, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 red chill, finely chopped
  • 2 cups of fresh broccoli


So to begin, heat the oil in a medium sized frying pan and once hot, add the cumin seeds and leave for just 30 seconds before including the chopped tomato too.

Next, grate the ginger into the pan and add the chopped chilli. Lower the heat and chop your mushrooms into thin slices.

If the pan begins to get dry at this point then feel free to add a splash of water. Once the mushrooms are sliced, stir together for four or five minutes before adding the kale, spinach and broccoli into the pan.

Let this cook for a few more minutes and then include the chopped garlic. At this stage you can add a little bit more water if necessary as well as salt and pepper to taste if you require. Your curry is now ready to serve!

  1. YUM! Can’t wait to try this one – just what we need in the run up to the holidays and food overload! I might just make this our ‘simple Sunday supper’ this week….

  2. Oh, how I love curry! I have a pretty amazing curry cookbook with recipes from all over the world, from Bengali tamarind fish curry to Pakastani vegetable curry, to Malaysian coconut curry soup and everything in between. I’ve probably tried 100 different curries from it, and I loved them all. Time to get cooking… thanks for the reminder!

  3. This looks absolutely delicious. I love that it is a vegetarian meal. Will suit my family with a couple of vegetarians, as well as for the others who will have had a fill of turkey at lunch. Can’t wait!

  4. I can’t wait for garden season. I grow my own veggies and now I have a brand new dish to try them on. I’ll use morel mushrooms from the forest and sneak some fiddle head ferns in there too. Can’t wait.

  5. I’m looking forward to making this Julie. Could you give me some advice on how to choose a piece of ginger. I end up picking stringy ones. Thanks again for your wonderful recipes. Happy Christmas!

  6. Dear Julie: 1. Thank you for visiting my blog.
    2. You are a great writer and I’ll certainly be reading your lovely posts.
    3. I agree with your conclusion about that Mediterranean diet, except for the fish: I am crazy about fish.
    4. As a Christian myself, I would encourage you to have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ than to tangle with dangerous things like yoga. I know that sounds extremist; but it is the truth: yoga and other Eastern ‘educations’ are very dangerous. Please forgive me for telling you that.

  7. I LOVE eating, but am a moderately dismal cook. I would have added the ingredients in nearly the opposite order, so thank you for the tip, I’ll be trying your way next time!

  8. Hi Julie, sounds really nice. I wanted to try it tomorrow. When do you add the turmeric and basil? (i read the recipe several times and can’t find it or maybe I can’t see very well ;)!). Thank you very much and Happy New Year!

  9. Hi Julie
    I was new to blogging last year and I guess I have explored hundreds of different blogs over the year – people who live in Spain, writers, photographers, foodies, book reviewers and some I struggle to define! That’s a lot of reading. Your blog is one I keep returning to, and so I’d like to nominate you for the Sunshine Award.

    Many thanks, and Happy Blogging in 2014!

  10. Dear friends, Brahmakumaris are vegetarian… and emphasize the importance of keeping thoughts pure… when preparing food… they either enhance or decrease the vibes of what we eat…thus affecting our health… vegetarian lifestyle is also more conducive to achieving total peace of mind.
    There is Brahmakumaris meditation…that relaxes the mind…nurtures a healthy balance between inner and outer worlds…recharge… rejuvenate the inner-self…

  11. Wow! I must try this, it looks divine. Just found your blog from you following mine (huge thanks!). Yoga & food; a woman after my own heart. I’ll be following!
