“Thai Green Curry Rice
This rice dish is made with a Thai green curry paste that is sold in Asian markets, natural food stores and some supermarkets. To vary this recipe, try making it with red curry paste instead of the green curry paste.
Preparation Time: 20 minutes (cooked rice needed)
Cooking Time: 12 minutes
1/3 cup vegetable broth
1 onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1-2 tablespoons green curry paste
2 cups chopped Napa cabbage
1 cup broccoli florets
1 cup cauliflower florets
1 cup snap peas
½ cup soy sauce
4 cups cooked long grain brown rice
1 tomato, chopped
1 tablespoon chopped fresh Thai basil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
Place the broth in a large pot along with the onion, bell peppers and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Stir in the curry paste. Add the cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, peas and soy sauce. Mix well, cover and cook for about 5 minutes, until vegetables are tender. Add the remaining ingredients, mix well and cook until heated through, about 2-3 minutes.
Hint: Curry pastes are quite spicy so you may want to start out with the smaller amount and add more to taste. If you can’t find fresh Thai basil, just use the fresh basil found in the produce department of your supermarket.”
This was good. I used 1 ½ Tablespoons green curry paste and it was pretty mild for Thai food. I think next time I’d use 2 Tablespoons of curry paste and perhaps a smidge of chili sauce. I used frozen peas rather than snap peas because I like them better. I left out the fresh cilantro and Thai basil because I couldn’t bring myself to spend the money for two bunches of herbs just to use 1 Tablespoon each. I’m going to be growing some herbs this summer so I’ll be able to just walk out on the deck and snip off a bit. I think regular cabbage or kale or other greens would work just as well as the Napa cabbage.
