Coconut Lamb Curry

Lamb coconut curry

Using herbs and spices is so important to flavor your meals once you start removing things like sugar and trans fats.

Once you quit added sugar, you’ll start to notice and appreciate so many savory flavors that might previously have been overpowered by the sweet taste. That’s why our Candida recipes tend to contain lots of different herbs, spices, and seasonings.

This delicious lamb curry recipe has a fragrant coconut flavor which is complemented by the chili, cayenne, and curry powder. Foods like the onion, coconut milk, and turmeric also have antifungal properties, which can help to rebalance your gut flora and prevent a pathogen like Candida albicans from getting out of control.

I like to serve this dish with quinoa, a complete source of protein that is filling, gluten-free, and has a low glycemic index compared to regular grains. I hope you enjoy it, let me know what you think!

    This was delicious! I doctored the spice level to my taste and I added okra to the curry because I had some leftover from the beef and okra stew. My husband (who doesnt suffer from candida) had his on regular rice and I ate mine on cauliflower rice that I sauteed with organic butter, diced jalapeno, onion, turmeric and curry powder. I then sprinkled red pepper flakes on it. I will definitely make this again.

    This is very good!

    Can I cook the lamb through first and then cook it with with coconut milk, etc.? I’m always wary of undercooking meat because I rarely eat meat.

    Thanks 🙂

    1. Lisa Richards says:

      Yes you can do that. It might get a little tough if you overcook it though!
