Spicy Vegetable Coconut Curry -

I’ve dined out on Thai food so much – and always thought it would be so hard to make at home. Nope, nuh uh, not at all. This most taxing part of this whole endeavor was the chopping of all the vegetables.

Seriously? Why did I waste all these years curriless in my own home?! It’s a tragedy.

Chop your veggies, saute them to wilt them a bit, pour a bunch of chicken stock over the top and simmer for a half hour and it’s DONE!

Curry is now a weeknight meal. Spicy Vegetable Coconut Curry -

The flavors are fresh, the colors are a feast in themselves and I think there is a new obsession beginning in my life.

And I have a feeling, it’ll be a new obsession in yours.

    I always eat Thai when I feel a cold coming on. All the spices clear out my sinuses and I feeling this recipe would do the soon. The colors of the broth against the Quince is breathtaking. Good luck!

    I have been in love with that color ever since I saw it come out in the W-S store. I love pale yellow and both the color and your curry are gorgeous!

    I *almost* love the recipe and *absolutely* love your photos! Definitely will try it at home. I say *almost* because I definitely recommend replacing the chicken stock with vegetable stock (or water) – I’m sure the recipe will not suffer, and neither will the chicken…

    Is it possible to note calories per serving for your recipes?

    • Megan replied: — January 26th, 2014 @ 6:04 pm

      Hi Shirley, because I am not a dietician or a health expert I choose not to display the nutritional info on my recipes. There are numerous websites that will calculate the info for you so I suggest giving one of them a try! Good luck!
