Even on lockdown, a household with working parents and homeschooling children can be a very busy place. Dinner time comes whenever everyone is free and hungry. Fixed schedules are a thing of the past. And, we’re all learning as we go.
If you’ve got even one member of your household with special dietary needs, your usual program may seem more topsy turvy than ever. I get it.
Eating vegan in a non-vegetarian family often means preparing two meals. And, since I’m eating this way out of medical necessity, there’s no way out.
However, thanks to the Instant Pot™, preparing for multiple dietary needs is a whole lot easier. This quick, Instant Pot™ chicken curry with greens comes together in mere minutes. It’s literally a question of dumping the ingredients into the pot liner and allowing the Instant Pot™ to work its magic. This efficiency buys you the time to prepare other dishes or simply relax over happy hour with a loved one or two!
What Greens Can I Use?
I’ve opted for kale because it looked beautiful at the market and it’s seasonal at the moment. However, the truth of the matter is you should use whichever greens are seasonal and fresh at your market. Any one of a number of greens would work well, including:
- Mustard greens,
- Collard greens,
- Chard, or
- Beet greens.
So, please don’t feel limited by my use of kale. Rather, go for the best, organic greens you can find locally. This will save you money and ensure that whatever you eat is at its peak for enjoyment and nutrition!
About this Recipe
This recipe is so quick and easy. The only two tricks (if you can call them that) are:
- Remove all hard stems from your greens, leaving only the leaves and soft portions behind. Then, tear the greens into roughly equal sized pieces.
- Ensure that the chicken pieces are cut as equally as possible. This will guarantee even cooking.
Other than that, this recipe is as easy as falling off a log. In fact, it’s a terrific recipe for a beginner cook because it’s pretty fail proof.
I hope your family enjoys this simple meal every bit as much as mine does. Bon appétit!
