When life gives you young Thai coconuts, make coconut curry sauce! Once all the water from the tropical fruit has been used as a refreshing beverage or in smoothies and non-dairy ice cream, you’re left with raw, delicious coconut meat. Blend it with curry powder, Roma tomatoes and a handful of other zesty ingredients to make a creamy raw and vegan sauce. It’s perfect for dressing salads or dipping veggies and sushi.
