This Chicken Laksa is tasty, pretty and will make you feel like an absolute whizz in the kitchen - because let’s face it, making your own laksa paste from scratch is pretty fancy! It will contain more flavour and none of the preservatives and carriers of the processed bought kind. The spices provide a great depth of flavour and lots of benefits such as antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Despite all the wonderful spices in this dish - it’s actually pretty mild overall. The coconut milk really mellows the spice so even people who are sensitive to spice can enjoy this one!
Coconut is utilised a lot in this dish (coconut oil and coconut milk) and is high in saturated fat - which isn’t a bad thing at all! Saturated fats are more heat stable than unsaturated (so don’t turn into trans fats when heated) and about 50% of the saturated fat in coconut is in the form of Lauric Acid, which converts to Monolaurin and is antibacterial, antifungal and supports the immune system against pathogens (so particularly great for winter!). We’ve added in some of our Garden Veggie Vegetable Broth for the B vitamins and Zinc to further support immune system function (and further support deliciousness).
So why not give this beautiful Laksa a try, then give yourself a pat on the back for making a well-balanced bowl full of goodness.
