About the Malaysian Spiced Coconut Curry recipe

This dish only take 20 minutes to create – it’s simple, vegan and gluten free! You can enjoy it on its own or over a grain like brown rice or quinoa. Since it makes a lot and stores well in the fridge, it’s great as a meal prep dish!

Feel free to substitute the collard greens or spinach with any other leafy greens, such as kale or swiss chard. Jamie used a little more than a teaspoon of Mama Lam’s curry paste, but you can add more to get more heat and flavor! Enjoy!
