Chicken Curry with Moringa

Curries made with turmeric and coconut milk are amazingly heart healthy. Add some ginger and garlic and your heart and arteries will thank you even more. This dish will help reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke because of all of its anti-inflammatory compounds. If you can’t find fresh moringa leaves, you can use green tea powder. To make this a vegan entree, substitute tofu or soybeans for the chicken. Vegan or not, this dish is delicious served over white or brown rice. BENEFITS Curry powder contains curcumin, and anti-inflammatory as powerful as a prescription drug. The fiber in the vegetables helps lower blood cholesterol. Garlic has allicin, which thins the blood and also lowers cholesterol. Plant-based coconut milk contains the anti-inflammatory lauric acid. The potassium in the moringa leaves helps balance sodium and regulate blood pressure.
