19. Thai Green Curry

🍁🍂 It’s day 19 of Blogtober and this meal is so easy to make, really delicious and guaranteed to warm you up on a cold autumn eve.

What you will need (serves 4)
– 1 onion
– 1 carrot peeled and chopped
– 8 baby sweetcorn
– 1 handful of snap peas
– 1 handful of broccolini
– 2 spring onions chopped
– 1 red bell pepper sliced
– 1 tin of chickpeas
– 1 chilli pepper (optional)
– 1 tbsp Thai green curry paste
– 1/2 tsp garlic powder
– 1 tsp ground ginger
– 1/2 tsp lemongrass
– 3 tbsp coconut milk
– 1 lime
– coriander to garnish
– rice

Step 1
Slice the onion and sauté in a pan of shallow water along with the red bell pepper on a medium heat. When the onion softens and becomes translucent, add the Thai green curry paste, ginger, garlic and lemongrass.

Step 2
After 2-3 minutes, add the carrot, snap peas, broccolini, baby sweetcorn and chilli ( if you have one) to the pan along with 200ml of water. Let this simmer for 15 minutes. This is a good time to cook your rice.

Step 3
Squeeze in the juice of your lime and add the chickpeas and coconut milk to the pan and cook for another 5 minutes on a low to medium heat.

Now you are ready to serve, garnish generously with coriander 👌🏻

Carrots are a source of beta-carotene which is excellent for your heart and your eyes (it is sometimes used to treat age related macular degeneration).
Broccolini is one of the most wonderful vegetables around. If you want protein, calcium, zinc, iron, omega 3 fats, magnesium, potassium, vitamins A,B,C,E and K amongst many other nutrients, broccoli is your best bet.

Happy creating!
