Coconut Curry Turkey Breast with Mixed Vegetables Recipe

When people hear the word “curry” they often think: SPICY!

But here’s the deal. “Spicy” doesn’t necessarily mean “setting my mouth on fire.” That’s where curry comes into play. Curry dishes feature an amazing blend of spices that make up a bright, flavorful, spice-filled bite. The level of heat is actually quite low, but the spices allow each bite to be jam-packed with flavor for maximum yum.

This coconut curry dish is a great balance between spicy and flavorful. The creaminess of the added coconut milk makes the dish comforting and can be used as a complimentary side dish or a great stand alone meal.
