tips, tricks & other recipes

  • The Thai curry paste (affiliate link) that I use, red curry paste (affiliate link), or green curry paste (affiliate link) to make this dish very fast is from Simple Asia. Both flavors from this brand are pretty good. And, If you read the label, you will find it very clean. They make their curry paste (affiliate link) with really clean ingredients.
  • Thai curry is a paste normally made with red chiles, aromatics, and spices. It is delicious and very easy to make. If you prepare your curry paste (affiliate link) at home, start by adding less curry paste (affiliate link) than what the recipe calls for. Add gradually until getting the taste you want.
  • When buying the canned coconut milk, look for the best you can find with the least ingredients. I like using full fat, but if you want a lighter version use the reduced fat can.
  • I used carrots, potatoes and green beans for this recipe, but feel free to use any vegetable that you want. I have used cauliflower, peas, broccoli, etc and it always tastes delicious.
  • Also, I love to serve this recipe with brown rice or quinoa. I love it when the grain absorbs the liquid and makes it really flavorful. So if you feel your Thai curry is a bit liquidy, serve it over rice.
  • Here are other recipes that I love. Curry cauliflower soup, 20 min curry recipe, chipotle roasted cauliflower tacos.
