Here’s one of the best van life recipes out there.


  • 2 Cloves of garlic
  • 1 White onion
  • 1 Red bell pepper
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Veggies of your choice: eg. head of broccoil, 1 zucchini, 1 bok choy
  • Spices (we use a curry spice paste from a local grocery store)
  • Vegetable stock (1 block)
  • 1 Can coconut milk
  • 1/2 Cup shredded coconut
  • Protein of your choice. We switch it up between shrimp, an egg and/or chicken!
  • Optional: Coriander and cashews, to taste.


  • 🧄Take a couple cloves of garlic, 1 onion, and a red pepper, put some extra virgin olive oil into a pan, and sauté these together.
  • 🥦Choose whatever veggies you like (we had broccoli, zucchini, & bok choy) put them into the first pan, and let them steam until the broccoli is soft.
  • 🌶Add some spices of your choice (we got a curry spice paste from the local grocery store).
  • 💦Boil 800 mL of water with some vegetable stock, then add it to your veggies.
