Vegetarian Thai Green Curry

The paste isn't nearly as hard as people think! (photo by Ashley)

This is a really easy, but really delicious Thai green curry. I make it regularly when I get home from work as it’s quite quick and it’s really tasty. Much yummier than shop bought stuff!

For 2 people

You will need:

  • 2 lemongrass stalks finely chopped
  • 1 large clove of garlic finely chopped
  • 1 large red chili finely chopped
  • 4cm cube ginger finely chopped
  • Zest half lime
  • 2 packets of coriander
  • 200g butternut squash diced
  • 10 mange touts
  • 4-6 baby sweetcorn
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 2/3 packet of Quorn chicken style pieces
  • Salted cashews
  • Rice

What to do:

  1. First of all, prepare your lemongrass, garlic, chili, ginger and lime as above. Pop in a mini blender or a mortar. Next, cut the leaves off your coriander and pop the stalks in with the lemongrass mixture. Blend or crush until you have a paste. You may need to add a dash of water.
  2. Next, fry off your Quorn pieces in a pan. Cook for 5 mins, then transfer to a bowl.
  3. Then, peel and chop your butternut squash.
  4. Now, pop some oil in a pan and warm. Put the paste in and cook until it is fragrant. When it smells amazing, pop the butternut squash in and cook for 2 mins. Then add the can of coconut milk and stir. Leave to simmer for 20 minutes.
  5. Next, make your rice.
  6. Then, add the Quorn and baby sweetcorn to the simmer mixture and cook until the Quorn is warmed through. If it’s getting a bit dry, add some water. Three mins before serving, add the mangetout and stir.
  7. Serve on a bed of sticky rice with some salted cashews on top! Yum!

As this is the vegetarian version, it does not contain Thai fish sauce. If you’re a carnivore, feel free to add a couple of tablespoons!
