Hey friends and happy Wednesday!
I don’t know about you, but I cannot BELIEVE that we are ONE WEEK away from THANKSGIVING!! I mean, seriously — where is time going?!
You guys. DO I HAVE A TREAT FOR YOU TONIGHT!
Holy cow, this recipe is a crowd pleaser, let me tell you!
Just what is it?! A beautiful Cashew Veggie Curry! And this particular night, I served it over millet (but you could sub rice or quinoa or even pasta!), and along side a beautiful piece of curry-crusted cod!
It was — truly a magical meal!
The sauce on this curry — I’m telling you, it is good enough to bathe in. I was practically drinking it it was that good. ((And just a little note — I took these photos before I smothered it all in the sauce, because it was more aesthetically pleasing this way!))
But the flavors are so exotic and exciting! It’s spicy, somewhat sweet, a little tangy, a little creamy — just delicious!
Plus — it’s gluten free, vegan, and paleo! AND Specific Carb Diet friendly if you omit the millet!
Now let’s just pause for a hot sec and talk about millet. Because typically, people hear “millet” and they think birdseed. And — yes, you would technically be correct. BUT – it is actually an ancient psuedo-grain that is actually a SEED that mimics a grain! So it’s terrific for paleo and grain-free diets, because it’s fluffy like rice and really soaks up the sauce and flavors you’re cooking with! PLUS! It’s a terrific source of protein, fiber, B vitamins and manganese — not to mention it cooks in less than 10 minutes!
Here’s What You Need: (Serves 4-5)
1 1/4 cups millet, cooked in 2 1/2 cups of veg stock, per package directions
1/2 head cauliflower, broken into florets and roasted or steamed
1 big stalk of broccoli, broken into florets and roasted or steamed
1 red pepper, chopped
2 large carrots, chopped
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups sugar snap peas, cut in half
1 Tbsp freshly grated ginger
3 garlic cloves
1 rounded tsp curry powder
salt and pepper
3 green onions, sliced
1 cup vegetable stock
juice of 1 lime
15 drops pure liquid stevia (or 1 Tbsp honey)
1/2 can light coconut milk
1/2 lb cod per person
salt and pepper
Large nonstick frying pan
2 baking sheets
Nonstick Tin Foil
Good chef’s knife (This is the one I use and love)
Sauce pan with tight fitting lid
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Put your broccoli and cauliflower florets on an olive-oil sprayed, tinfoil-lined baking sheet and sprits with olive oil. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, until golden brown.
Cook your millet until it absorbs all the liquid, about 20-25 minutes. When it has absorbed all the stock, fluff it with a fork, and add salt to taste.
Meanwhile, prep your veggies.
Then, in a big, nonstick frying pan, sauté the onion in 1 Tbsp EVOO, salt, pepper, and curry powder. Allow them to cook for about 5 minutes on medium heat, until the onions have softened.
Next, add your carrots, and let them cook for about 3 minutes. Stir in your peppers and peas, and let them cook for another 3-4 minutes.
Then, stir in your garlic, ginger, broccoli and cauliflower.
Let those cook for about 4 minutes. It will be very fragrant!
Stir in the vegetable stock, lime juice, sweetener mixture, and let that warm through. Finally, stir in the coconut milk, and let it warm through.
To serve, make a bed of millet and pile on those veggies! Garnish with cilantro, cashews, and green onions! And whatever you do — don’t skimp on the sauce! It’s the best part!
Alongside this dish, I served cod fish! I took the loin, put it on a tinfoil-lined baking sheet, drizzled it with olive oil and sprinkled it with salt, pepper, curry powder and fresh lemon juice. I then baked it for about 30 minutes at 400 degrees, until flakey and cooked through.
Wow, wow, WOW! WHAT A DISH!
There’s something about a meal with a bomb.com sauce that really makes my heart sing. haha
But I’m telling you — the creaminess of the coconut milk, coupled with the deep spice in the curry powder, the *zing* of the lime juice, the fresh bite from the ginger, and then the undertone of garlic — it was the combination of the perfect storm and I was here for it.
HERE FOR IT!!
All the veggies paired perfectly with it. And the millet just soaked up the sauce and all the flavors.
Make this dish. I promise it will NOT disappoint!
(Not to mention it’s pretty fool proof too! The sauce makes itself!)

That’s not my usual fare but I’ll try it! The passage of time never changes of course but time does seem to pass more quickly as I’ve aged… Weird!
I feel you there John! Thanks for stopping by! Hugs and love xox
Wow that looks delicious 🙂 That seems like a healthy meal to have once or twice a month, If not every day. Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂
P.S. although Fettuccine Alfredo probably has a lot of calories in it, this particular one seems like the perfect one (even If it is far from healthy) to have once or twice during the year – maybe close to Thanksgiving or Christmas Eve. Here is the link below 🙂
Thanks John! Oh yes – healthy and delicious! Oh sounds great! Hugs and love xox

This looks great, well done. I’ve recently started reading your blog from the beginning and it helps me realise just how significant these posts you are doing now are. Keep going strong. God bless. xxx
Thank you so much!! Oh my gosh I can’t begin to express how much that means that you’d read my story. Thank you for that 🥰 sending big big hugs xox
You’re so very welcome. It is a privilege to read about your life’s journey and thank you for sharing and being so honest. I know I don’t know you personally, but I can say I feel ‘proud of you’ for how far you have come and that God Is using you to help other people. I know someone who died almost a decade ago now from an ED, so it is just so lovely to see that you are flourishing and the things you share will help others to understand better. I am in ‘recovery’ from other things, not an ED, but I know how tough things can be in my own way and people don’t see it on the surface, which is why I felt it’s important to read your story because you are important and what you share is so valuable. I know we have different things we are overcoming but I really related to your post about ‘identifying the lie’ which is at the root of a lot of brokenness – it is something God has been working on with me, and just think if that is what a lie can do, how much more powerful is the Truth. We shall know the Truth and the Truth will set us free! Big hugs to you too, brave lady. xxx
💛💛💛💛 that truly means so much. Gosh, I am so sorry to hear that – it breaks my heart. people don’t realize how serious of a disease it really is. Praise God for recovery and His freeing truth. Amen. Hugs and love xox
