If you’re new to cooking without oil, dairy and meat it can be intimidating. Today I’m showing you how to cook without oil in a video!
It’s a whole new world of flavor and spice and texture and ingredients. But actually, cooking Whole Food Plant Based recipes is much easier than most people think.
It’s also a lot easier to clean up because there is no oil coating your dishes. The part that takes the longest is chopping the veggies. Today I’m inviting you into my kitchen to show you how to whip together a delicious Red Bean Curry.
Watch the video below and get inspired to make out with your kitchen. Cooking at home is one of the most worthwhile things you will ever do. You just gotta do it!

- 1 cup diced red onion (130g)

- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
- 1 can (15oz / 425g) diced tomatoes
- 1 can (15oz / 425g) kidney beans
- 1 cup water (235ml)

- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1 teaspoon red chili powder
- 3/4 teaspoon salt

- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper (10 turns)
- 1/4 teaspoon cumin powder
- 1 bay leaf
- 2 cups chopped spinach
- Heat a medium-sized pot over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add the onions and cook for about 5 minutes, adding a splash of water and stirring when they start to brown.
- Add the garlic and green onions and cook for an additional minute.
- Add the tomatoes, kidney beans, water, coconut aminos (if using), cinnamon stick, red chili powder, salt, turmeric powder, coriander powder, ginger powder, black pepper, cumin powder and bay leaf. Simmer with a lid on the pot at an angle, for 20 – 25 minutes, until most of the liquid has been absorbed.
- Turn off the heat and stir in the spinach. Remove the cinnamon stick and bayleaf before serving.
Wishing you a happy week. May it be filled with playing in your kitchen.
