THAI GREEN CURRY

Creamy coconut milk infused with gorgeously fragrant Thai spices. A truly delicious and nutrient packed meal, this Thai curry is the dreamm. Using a range of traditional Thai flavors, including lemongrass, green chill and ginger, it has a real authentic taste…and an incredible kick!

I always start by making my own thai curry paste. Fresh ingredients make for 100X more flavor, and theres no competition to shop bought(buuut…when time is tight, theres some pretty great ones out there too!).

I use a range of veggies in the curry, including carrot, courgette, peppers, baby sweetcorn, and green beans. Something I love about recipes like this, is you can really use whatever you want(or have lying around!). Sweet potatoes go beautifully in this, along with spinach, peas, or anything else you can think of. It’s really up to you!

Coconut milk gives this curry a extra-creamy texture, and provides a perfect balance against the spices. The milk simmers along with the veggies are curry paste, allowing it to infuses with flavor. This curry is also amazing the next day, letting the flavors bring together even more. Who doesn’t love leftover curry for lunch??

Served with brown rice, or homemade roti-bread, this thai green curry makes for the perfect comforting meal, and can be adjusted to suit everyone’s taste buds! With healthy fats, minerals, vitamins, and fibre…you really can’t go wrong. Homemade, but restaurant quality.
