Spicy Eggplant and Green Bean Curry

Spicy Eggplant and Green Bean Curry created by Maryland Jim

A recipe I love based on one from the March 2007 issue of Bon Appetit magazine, in the Readers' Quick Recipes section, attributed to Nick Vidargas of Sacramento, California. The intro states, "This fresh and sophisticated dish would be a delicious vegetarian entree for two -- just add rice. Look for curry paste and coconut milk in the Asian foods section of the supermarket."

    It was fine, but not that good that I will make it again. I'm a vegetarian and adore vegetables and interesting spices. As written this was flat and not at all spicey. I TRIPLED the green curry paste, increased the onions and added powdered garlic, in addition to the 4 cloves of garlic. The lime flavor was predominant. Maybe less lime zest would help. I served it with Indian cumcumber salad [172618].

    This was excellent! Agree that this would make a great vegan main dish. I really like the mint and cilantro, these are a must in this dish. Made for ZWT8, The Wild Bunch.

    I was a bit skeptical of such a quick thai curry, but it was really good. I've never used eggplant as a quick veg either, thought it might be bitter or tough without the soaking and what have you beforehand. It wasn't at all - I sauteed it quite well, maybe a bit longer than 10 mins so it browned up - I thought the texture was great and so did my dinner guest. I agree with Prose, a little tofu would be a great addition to this. Thanks Mersay! Made for Veg Swap 16 - Nov09
