Thai Red Curry {vegan, wfpb}


IMG_1061Thai food is one of our favorites.  So creating our own quick and easy Thai Red Curry to serve over jasmine rice was important.  To make this as low-fat as possible, we use a light coconut milk.  Additionally, this recipe also features some delish, locally grown broccoli, Thai basil, and zucchini from our CSA share.

Eating the Thai Red Curry!

The rice saturated with the Thai Red Curry sauce and the crisply cooked vegetables is a great texture (and flavor) combination.  This is easy for a weeknight meal and makes for great leftovers for lunch or another night during the week.  We use our rice cooker to prep several cups of rice, so we always have rice on hand to whip up a quick meal.  Our rice cooker has enhanced our meals and decreased the prep time.  Grab one for yourself in our Amazon Shop!
