Thai Green Curry and Giveaway Winner

I absolutely love thai green curry. It's creamy, flavorful, warm, and filling. Oh and so healthy! A few years ago I started making a thai recipe from a cookbook that a friend gave me called Rebar. Each time I put my own variation on it depending on what I'm in the mood for or have on hand. Sometimes I add sweet potatoes. I've made it with tofu (first marinated in tamari and sesame oil), and lately I've made it with chicken or beef. Swap out any of the veggies I've called for.


Thai Green Curry

1 eggplant, peeled and diced + coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
1 medium onion
4 tablespoons green curry paste
1 can coconut milk
1/4 cup water
1 zucchini, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 1/2 cups sliced or quartered mushrooms
Cubed, cooked protein of choice (tofu marinated in tamari is delish!)
2-3 tablespoons tamari
3 tablespoons fish sauce or more tamari

Garnish

Fresh basil, mint, and/or cilantro
Fresh lime juice
peanuts or cashews, chopped

Heat a few spoonfuls of coconut oil in a large frying pan and cook the eggplant with a few generous pinches of salt over medium/high heat until golden and cooked through. (Note: eggplant sucks up oil like a sponge so use enough and add a little water part way through. Salt is all necessary with eggplant).
Transfer to a bowl.
Heat the coconut oil in a large pot on medium heat. Add the onion and cook a few minutes. 
Add the curry paste and slowly whisk in the coconut milk. 
Turn up the heat and add the veggies, tamari, and fish sauce. Simmer until the veggies are cooked to the doneness of preference.
Stir in the cooked eggplant and protein.

Yumm, crunchy cashews on top at always a must!


Have you ever made a thai curry? I hope you try this one!

  1. We ate green curries sooo often in my family when I was growing up that I think it's largely why I went off coconut milk for a while! But you do make this look good :P
