Me: “I could eat curry forever! It is soooo good!”
Mom: “You mean you could eat it for the next two weeks straight until you become completely sick of it.”
Me: “No, there are so many options. Green curry, red curry, yellow curry…”
I have a bad habit of becoming obsessed with a food/meal and only eating that until I never want to see that food ever again in my life. But curry? How can you get sick of it? I’m not even a spicy person yet I can’t get enough of it lately. I’ve been on a green curry kick as of late, but every variety of curry is a star in my book.
This recipe calls for coconut milk and I used my Homemade Coconut Mylk. I recently posted my very first video on YouTube and it’s a quick and easy tutorial on how to make your own, chemical/additive/stabilizer-free coconut mylk. First of all, it would mean the world to me if you could head on over and and watch it, like it, and subscribe to my channel. And please let me know what types of videos you would like to see (more recipe tutorials, what I eat videos, anything!). Second of all, I highly recommend giving the recipe a shot because 1) it’s delicious, 2) it’s chemical free unlike the store-bought varieties, and 3) it’s perfect in this recipe!
Vegan Green Curry
1-2 tbs. fresh grated ginger (depending on how much you like that ginger kick)
2 tbs. green curry paste (will be spicy, reduce if not a huge spicy fan)
1 tbs. coconut aminos
3 large carrots (I used a mix of purple and orange)
2 stalks of broccoli florets, chopped
2 yellow squash, cut into rounds and then cut in half
2 small baby bok choy, chopped into bite sized pieces
1 cup vegetable broth
1 cup homemade coconut milk or canned coconut milk (low fat or full fat, whichever you prefer)
1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
4 green onions, chopped
salt to taste
First things first, prep all your ingredients. Have everything chopped, grated, and ready to go.
Heat 1 tbs. of water over medium-high heat in a large saucepan with high sides. Add the grated ginger and cook for about 1 minute until it becomes fragrant.
Reduce heat to medium and add the green curry paste. Cook for another 1-2 minutes to warm curry and allow it to become fragrant, as well.
Add the carrots and cook for 3 minutes, covered. Add a couple tablespoons of water if the carrots begin to stick. Then add the broccoli, 1/4 cup of vegetable broth, and coconut aminos. Cook for about 3 more minutes, covered, until broccoli and carrots begin to soften. Add yellow squash and cook for another 3-5 minutes until squash begins to soften.
Add the bok choy, remaining veggie broth, coconut milk, turmeric powder, and salt to taste (add about 1/4 tsp at this point).
Stir well. Bring to a slight boil then reduce to simmer, stirring occasionally, and let cook until bok choy softens and all veggies are cooked through (another 5-7 minutes).
Stir in the the green onions and allow them to absorb the flavors before serving. Add more salt if desired.
Serve over rice or noodles and enjoy!
