Coconut Lime Curry

coconutlimecurry3

This deliciously creamy curry is super comforting. The thick coconut sauce and zesty lime make a seriously tasty combo. All you need is one pot a few simple ingredients. I’ve used chickpeas and tofu in mine but you can always load it with vegetables, I like mine with a side of tender stem broccoli and asparagus.
