green curry is one of my most favorite dishes to order at a thai restaurant. recreating it at home however, has always been a bit tricky for me. i tried yet again to get the ingredients just right this week, and i think it was a success (there were no leftovers, anyways)! i served it with brown rice and a sprout salad, and it hit the spot.
- 2 tbs olive oil
- 2 tbs green curry
- 2-3 cups of chopped mixed veggies (carrots, onions, peppers, zucchini and cauliflower work great)
- 1 can of coconut milk
- 1 block of firm tofu, cubed
- fresh thai basil (optional)
heat oil in a medium saucepan and stir fry veggies until tender and lightly browned. add the coconut milk, green curry and tofu and bring to a boil then reduce heat and let simmer for 15-20 minutes. add a few leaves fresh thai basil (if you have it) and enjoy!
