Healthy green curry

The abundance of intensely flavoured ingredients makes this recipe really tasty without the addition of too much fat.
The vegetables are excellent sources of iron, fibre and vitamin C. Quick cooking oats are used to thicken this curry so as to avoid the addition of thickeners like refined flour and cornstarch.
This curry makes a great meal while you’re lactating because of the addition of fresh garlic which helps to enhance the production of breast milk.
