Thai food is my weakness. Yesterday I was having one of those days where I could focus on nothing other than Thai food, in particular green curry. Not wanting to risk getting something loaded with artificial sweeteners and possibly dairy sources (although Thai curries are often made with coconut milk you usually need to triple check) I set off to the local organic store to see what I could find. I was delighted to find they had an organic, clean and vegan Thai green curry paste and some of the tastiest coconut cream around (see image below for brand). Perfect options to cure my craving!

So here’s the recipe. *Please note you are free to swap and change the veggies about to suit your taste, and where possible use organic or locally sourced varieties.

Serves: 4-6 people

Prep time: 5 mins

Cooking time: 20 mins

 

Ingredients:

1x 400ml can coconut cream

2 sachets (one packet) of organic Thai green curry paste (Westcountry brand)

1x 400g tin organic chickpeas (drained and rinsed)

500g organic tofu

1 cup frozen peas

2 zucchinis (sliced)

1 head of broccoli

1 large onion

1-2 cloves garlic

1 tbsp olive oil

1 green chilli (chopped with seeds for extra kick)

½ bunch basil

Cooked Brown rice to serve

Fresh baby spinach to serve

Good quality sea salt to taste

How to:

Cook onion and garlic with olive oil until deliciously fragrant. Then add chopped up tofu and peas and cook for a few minutes. Then add thai curry paste and can of coconut cream. Add veggies of your choice, chilli, and chickpeas and simmer for about 10 minutes. Then add the basil towards the end and allow to cook for another 5 minutes.

Serve on top of baby spinach or for those of you who want to fluff this meal out to go further serve with some brown rice also.

 

Done!

 

NOTE: A quick note on using tofu. It is such a controversial topic whether or not to include soy products as part of your diet, one person says they are the cause of cancer and another says they prevent cancer. For me I have chosen to include soy products as a very rare addition to meals and only ever include organic sources (for fear of the GMO crap that can be found in regular varieties).

    I will try, but since I am in USA must adjust and guesstimate ingredients. No problem as this is how I like to cook anyway. Thanks Cat, your posts have really spoken to me and have helped me get back to loving myself.
