  4 servings, 1 1/4 cups each
Curry quick enough for a weeknight supper - especially if you use precut cauliflower and baby spinach.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerator for up to 2 days.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
2 teaspoons  canola oil
1   medium red bell pepper, cut into 1- to 2-inch-long julienne strips
1   medium onion, halved and sliced
1 clove  garlic, minced
1 tablespoon  minced fresh ginger
1-2 teaspoons  red curry paste, to taste (see Ingredient note)
1 pound  boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 cup  reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 cup  "lite" coconut milk
1 tablespoon  fish sauce or reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon  light brown sugar
1 1/2 cups  cauliflower florets
2 cups  baby spinach
1 tablespoon  lime juice
Lime wedges

Ingredient Note:  A blend of chile peppers, garlic, lemongrass and galanga (a rhizome with a flavor similar to ginger), commercial Asian curry paste is a convenient way to add heat and complexity to a recipe. Look for it in small jars or cans in the Asian section of the store. Brands differ in spiciness so use sparingly. Once opened, it will keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.

DIRECTIONS
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper and onion; cook, stirring often, until beginning to soften, about 4 minutes. Add garlic, ginger and curry paste; stir to mix. Add chicken and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Stir in broth, coconut milk, fish sauce (or soy sauce) and brown sugar; bring to a simmer. Add cauliflower, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and the cauliflower is tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in spinach and lime juice; cook just until spinach has wilted. Serve immediately, with lime wedges.

Vegetarian variation: Substitute 1 pound extra-firm tofu (drained) for the chicken and vegetable broth for chicken broth.
