Thai-style Vegetable Green Curry

Posted Jan 08 2013 9:36am

 

There are three weeks to go before class begins, so I’m staying at my aunt and uncle’s house while I get settled. My aunt is a total foodie: her kitchen is stuffed to the brim and she has a veritable library of cookbooks. I’ve been taking advantage of both to experiment with a whole new world of cuisine. Look what I made!

 

Vegetable Green Curry

 

This Thai-style green vegetable curry is absolutely the thing for a rainy London afternoon: it’s spicy and light, but also creamy and comforting. I was inspired by several different cookbooks and used my favourite vegetables, so don’t be shy to use this recipe as a base for your favourite flavourings. It comes together really easily, too. Just be prepared to do some chopping!
