Meat Free Monday: Cauliflower, Mango and Spinach Coconut Curry [vegan] [gluten free]

This Meat Free Monday recipe is a delicious Cauliflower, Mango and Spinach Coconut Curry by The Flexitarian in support of TREE AID’s Tree Food Challenge and Grow Hope Appeal.

Cauliflower, Mango and Spinach Coconut Curry [vegan] [gluten free] by The Flexitarian

This Meat Free Monday recipe is a delicious Cauliflower, Mango and Spinach Coconut Curry by The Flexitarian in support of TREE AID’s Tree Food Challenge and Grow Hope Appeal.

Since 1987 TREE AID has been a leading expert in using trees to tackle poverty and produce environmental improvement in remote and isolated areas of Africa. Trees are helping people create thriving, sustainable communities. Tree foods are a vital source of nutrition for families in the drylands of Africa. Every two minutes, a child dies from hunger and malnutrition, which kills more people every year than AIDS, TB and Malaria combined. Trees provide a direct answer to hunger, and the lifeline families so desperately need.

Mango is a wonderful tree food. Mango trees can live up to 300 years while still bearing fruits. I love the mango fruits, they are deliciously sweet and have a generous flesh. Mangos are rich in vitamins A, B6, C, and minerals. They also contain anti-oxidants.

This Christmas, you can help families in Africa grow their own tree foods by supporting the Grow Hope appeal. TREE AID are asking people to support the appeal by fundraising or making a donation. To find out more and make a donation visit the TREE AID website.
