1 med. zucchini
Put all the diced, chopped or sliced vegetables into a big 6-8qt. pot. Removing the rib from the center of each leaf of kale before chopping. Add tomatoes, curry and seasonings plus 14 oz. water. Cover and bring to a nice simmer. Stir gently, to get everything moved around a bit, and into the seasoned tomato water.
Continue to simmer for 45-60 minutes. Meanwhile, sizzle the meat in the coconut oil in a hot cast iron pan, to cook it part way. Add the meat to the curry-vegetable pot. *I like to add about 1c of dried fruit during the cooking process, but it can just be omitted, or put on later, as a topping. Simmer another 20 minutes. This will be really good now, but even better tomorrow. Chilling then a gentle reheating brings out so much more flavor. This will serve a lot of hungry people. . .Lin
