Notes

  • *Tomatoes: Fresh is great, but you can also sub with 2 14-oz cans of diced tomatoes. I use Muir Glen Organic Diced Tomatoes, No Salt.
  • *Coconut Milk: The coconut milk I use is from Native Forest: Unsweetened Coconut Milk (Simple). It’s USDA organic, gluten-free, and unlike other brands, doesn’t contain any emulsifiers, preservatives, or gums like guar or xanthan–just coconut milk. You can get it from Thrive Market for $2.99/can (cheaper than Whole Foods/Amazon). If you’re new to Thrive Market, this link will give you 25% off your first order.
  • *Spices: I get my Himalayan pink salt, curry, turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon powders in bulk (usually 1 lb or 1/4 lb) from Essential Organics. They’re all organic, super reasonably priced, and save me a ton of time at the grocery store.
