Healthy Beef Curry & Creamy Cauliflower Rice

Healthy Beef Curry

This is an incredibly tasty and tender, healthy beef curry made ‘from scratch’ so you know it is choc-full of nutrients with no added preservatives. 

We’ve paired it with our creamy cauliflower rice – with a twist.  (Do you recognise it? We’ve used it before HERE.) 

You could easily throw everything straight into the slow-cooker if you prefer. But I find marinating and sealing the meat prior to slow-cooking yields so much more flavour. 

Perfect fare for the cooler weather when you want something comforting in the belly. This is quite a mild curry, but you can spice it up if you like an extra kick. It’s also great to make and freeze for that go-to meal when you are too tired to cook.

Where possible, we try to use organic ingredients.  These are a better option when it comes to midlife/menopause as they have no added chemicals that may interfere with hormones. There are a ton of mood-boosting vitamins and minerals included.
