Q: What would you recommend as a replacement for coconut milk? I have a coconut allergy and my son has a cow milk allergy which removes the evaporated milk option. How do you think regular goat's milk or maybe yogurt would work? This is all his favorite veggies (yes my 3.5 year old likes kale, sweet potato and chickpeas) but the coconut thing just won't work. Cheers, Eli P.
A: Instead of the coconut milk, you could thicken and flavor your stew with goats milk yogurt. The flavor would be different of course.You could also add soaked cashews blended with water, which would be creamy and keep the sweet flavor - Savvy Veg
Comment: We found it a bit bland; I added a dollop of red Thai curry paste, more veg (carrots, broccoli, mushrooms, onions) & sauteed tofu - BerksBess
Reply: We eat very little spicy food, so it's fair to say it's bland. I don't think tofu is necessary (lots of protein in chickpeas) - either one would do. Of course I expect that people will adapt my recipes to their taste! - Savvy Veg
