Tofu And Broccoli Green Curry

Protein-rich tofu cooked with the mighty crucifer broccoli and flavoured with the delightful flavours of Thailand, make a satisfying and healthy meal. Garlic, ginger and chillies work their immune-boosting magic, whilst coconut milk provides a dose of healthy fats. Always use organic tofu as conventionally-grown soya is usually a highly sprayed crop. Tofu is a good source of phytoestrogens that can help your body’s hormone balance, and broccoli is packed with sulforaphane for healthy oestrogen clearance, making this meal a perfect choice for female hormonal balance. This is the perfect combo of protein, veggies and fats to keep you full and your blood sugar levels even.

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 175g firm organic tofu, drained, cut into small cubes
  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos, tamari or soy sauce (check for gluten if needed)
  • 3 tbsp quality green curry paste (check for fish sauce if vegan)
  • 1 can coconut milk 
  • 3 cups broccoli (cut into florets)
  • optional fresh coriander to serve

  8. Enjoy with mindfulness and gratitude!

BRILLANT BROCCOLI

Broccoli, along with other cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, kale, cauliflower, watercress, mustard, radishes) contributes healthy oestrogen clearance in the body, as well as providing fibre to support gut health. A healthy microbiome aids with absorption of nutrients and effective excretion. Probiotics also play a crucial role in neutralising spent oestrogens for healthy excretion out of the body.
