Unconventional Vegetarian Thai Red Curry
I say unconventional because I have never seen a Thai Red Curry made with these ingredients, perhaps you have ? Either way, this was a simple recipe, full of vitamins and antioxidants which I am sure you will enjoy.
First, compile the following ingredients:
3 baby bok choys
1 medium onion
3 garlic cloves
1 can light coconut milk
2 tables Thai red curry paste
2 small sweet potatoes
1 cup diced mushroom
2 tbsp sliced basil
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp Serrano chili
1-2 cups chicken/vegetable broth ( depending on how much you like coconut, and how thick you want the sauce)
First, as usual with many recipes, sautee the onion and garlic and Serrano chili in the olive oil. Just warm it through so that it is translucent. Next add the coconut milk and curry paste, stirring until it is well combined. Now you can add the remaining veggies and herbs, top with the broth and let it simmer until sweet potatoes are fully cooked and the sauce has reached a consistency pleasing to your palate.
I served this with simple basmati rice, but of course the traditional option would be jasmine rice.
