Coconut Curry Sauce Recipe:
Two nights ago I made a Coconut Curry Shrimp and had some leftover Coconut Curry Sauce which I used today in the Veggie Blast with Beans. 

Coconut Curry Veggie Blast with Beans Recipe:
In a hot pan with 1 tbsp of EVOO, add 1/2 diced White Onion and saute 2-3 minutes, then add 1/2 Large Zucchini, diced to the pan.  Once browned add 2 Garlic Cloves, sliced.  Cook a couple more minutes, then add 2 cups Cauliflower. 

(I used pre-cooked Cauliflower that I made the day before in my Slow Cooker on Low for 6 hours with 4 Cloves of Garlic, salt & 1 cup of Low Sodium Chicken Broth, which I then mashed into a Cauliflower pulp so it would ready to throw into dishes like this to help make fast meals for the next couple days).

Add Kidney Beans, Chick Peas, & 2 cups of Coconut Curry Sauce. Stir all together and cover and heat until Veggies reach desired done-ness.  Take off heat, remove lid and add 1-2 large handfuls of fresh Spinach, cover and allow to wilt a couple minutes.  Stir and serve.
