Chicken, Cauliflower and Kale Coconut Curry

Lisa Samuel // // Coconut Curry

I didn’t grow up eating ethnic food. Exotic meals included taco nights, with crispy taco shells filled with seasoned ground beef and shredded lettuce and cheddar cheese, or a Bisquick-crust pizza, again with seasoned ground beef, tomato sauce and shredded cheese. My Mom was–and is–a great home cook, but when I was growing up we ate platters of fried pork chops with mushroom gravy, chicken and rice casseroles and well-done beef roasts with potatoes and carrots. It was the 80s after all.
