thai green curry

my second or third bowl

I love green curry, so I am taking note to remind myself how much better it is when you don’t forget the lime at the end! I happened to have squash and sweet potato on hand, which made the dish look as wonderful as it tasted–but my favourite ingredient was the dried shiitake (which I rehydrated and threw into the curry with its water).

  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons green curry paste
  • whatever vegetables you’d like: eggplant, carrot, sweet potato, etc.
  • 1 can (400 ml) coconut milk
  • 1 cup (250 ml) vegetable stock
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lime zest
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice (about half a lime should do it)
  • fresh cilantro for serving

Heat the oil. Add onion and curry paste and fry for a couple of minutes. Add your veggies and fry for a bit before pouring in the coconut milk + stock. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer until the vegetables are tender. Mix in the sugar, lime zest & lime juice at the very end. eat with your favourite rice. yum.
