Preparation steps


Clean, peel, and slice carrots at a slight angle. Mix with 1 tbsp. coconut oil, salt and pepper, and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Rinse chicken, pat dry and cut into slices about 1/2 inch thick. Mix the curry paste with 2 tablespoons oil, lemon juice, and salt. Mix in chicken and place on baking sheet with carrots. Bake in preheated oven at 200 °C / 400 °F for approx. 20 minutes.


Meanwhile, rinse quinoa in a colander and cook in boiling salted water for 10-15 minutes.


Meanwhile, chop peanuts, setting aside half. Bring peanut puree with coconut milk and soy sauce to a boil in a saucepan, stirring, and reduce to creamy consistency over low heat in 5 minutes. Season sauce with cayenne pepper and salt and mix in peanuts, adding a little water as needed.


Wash spinach and shake dry. Peel ginger and chop finely. Heat remaining oil in a frying pan. Sauté ginger in it over medium heat for 1 minute. Add spinach and let it collapse, then season with salt. Arrange spinach with quinoa, carrots and chicken on 4 plates, sprinkle with remaining peanuts and serve with sauce.
