So I was provided a challenge to develop a blog site about a Vegetarian Curry of my choice and I think I have discovered a dish that both tastes excellent and is a really healthy vitamin dense meal.
This curry is based on a Thai Green Curry recipe. I attempted this dish when and thought it was scrumptious. So here we are, with my variation. This time, I chose asparagus, carrots and wilted spinach.
Tofu is consisted of in this dish but I didn’t utilize it and still discovered the dish to be wholesome and substantial without it. Nevertheless, if you wish to include tofu, bake it initially then include it with the coconut milk.
I served my curry over basmati rice (but you can also use wild rice or long grain), and Quinoa would be an intriguing alternative. I hope it decreases a treat!
It has lots of flavour for a healthier meal which is likewise simple enough for any time of the week. Another alternative would be to utilize sliced up snow peas rather of the asparagus to bring out flavours from the curry.
1 cup brown basmati rice, washed
2 teaspoons coconut oil or olive oil
1 small white onion, diced
1 tablespoon carefully sliced fresh ginger (about a 1-inch nub of ginger, peeled and sliced)
2 cloves garlic, finely sliced
Pinch of salt
1/2 lot asparagus, difficult ends eliminated and sliced into 2-inch long pieces (to yield about 2 cups prepared asparagus)
3 carrots, peeled and sliced on the diagonal into 1/4-inch broad rounds (to yield about 1 cup sliced carrots)
2 tablespoons of Thai Green Curry paste
1 can coconut milk
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
2 cups spinach (ideally sliced)
1 1/2 teaspoons lime juice (from an actual lime, please)

Red pepper flakes (for included spice)
2 cups of baked tofu
