READY IN: 26mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

This is an easy and versatile, quick meal. Use any type of cooked meat and serve this over steamed rice or cooked noodles. Use low-fat coconut milk if you like. I found this in the Chicago Tribune.

Thai Green Curry is one of my favorite favorite dishes! I love this recipe because it's so versatile and I am a true green curry critic (and addict). I've made this recipe a few times already and I've tweaked to perfection, and now I enjoy making it at home more than eating it at my favorite Thai restaurant. I add 4 cloves of minced garlic to the shallots and ginger; and for the vegetables I skip the bamboo shoots (not a fan) and instead use 1 green bell pepper, an eggplant, and half cup of peas. I also use 3tbsp of curry paste, an additional half can of coconut milk, a bit more water, and about 4 shots of fish sauce. During the simmer phase I threw in a bunch of Thai basil and 2tbsp of cayenne and 6 red thai chillies chopped... gimme some heat! Thanks for posting a recipe that you really can make your own!
