Nutrition Details

Variations Rather than ground beef, use organic ground chicken or turkey, or organic diced chicken or turkey in place of ground beef. You may also consider shrimp or a firm fish in place of ground beef. Or you could easily make this dish vegan with organic tempeh or organic firm tofu in place of ground beef. Another variation is to mix green beans into the curry and serve this dish over cooked brown rice or cooked quinoa.
