  1. Start by preparing the prawns and cooking the brown rice or quinoa. Use the instructions on the bag for your preferred grain!
  2. For the curry, heat a large pot over medium heat. Add coconut oil, garlic and shallot. Saute for several minutes.
  3. Add cumin, coriander, and ginger. Sauté for another minute. Add red curry paste and stir to combine. Let it cook for another 2 minutes.
  4. Add potatoes and carrots and stir. Cook for several minutes and add coconut milk, crushed tomatoes, tamari, and maple syrup.
  5. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes while you prepare the garlic shrimp.
  6. For the garlic prawns, heat oil on a pan with your desired amount of garlic. I like A LOT of garlic for the garlic prawns!
  7. Add prawns. Cook until ready!
  8. Squeeze a lime over the prawns.
  9. Build your bowl! Start having the rice or quinoa as your base. Add the curry, prawns and whatever toppings you desire.
