Thai Green Curry

get you greens in!

A simple, deliciously fragrant Thai Green Curry, packed with nutritious greens and chickpeas for your protein! Perfect for meal prepping, I like to make a large batch to last me 2-3 days when I have a hectic schedule and don't want to miss out on nutritous food!

prep time: 10 mins
cook time: 10 mins
feeds: 4 portions

Ingredients

Thai green curry paste

4 cloves of garlic

3 shallots

thumb of ginger

2 lemongrass stalks

4 green chillies

1 tsp dried coriander

1 tsp dried cumin

1 tsp white pepper

1 tsp tamari (use coconut aminos to keep it soy free)

coriander stalks for paste

handful Thai basil

The Curry

240g cooked chickpeas (1 can)

400ml coconut milk (1 can)

100g Green Beans

1 Courgette/Zucchini

1 Broccoli

100g Mangetout

top with coriander leaves 1 red Chilli, 2 spring onions and lime!

Method

1. Start of by making the Thai green curry past by adding the garlic, Shallots, ginger, Lemongrass, Green Chillies, dried coriander, dried cumin, white pepper, tamari and Coriander stalks to a food processor and pulse until you get the right consistency. A more authentic way to prepare the paste is to use a pestle and mortar to break down the ingredients and get them infusing together! But for a quick paste, a food processor will do.

2. Chop the courgette into chunky rectangles and broccoli into small pieces. 

3. add your courgette, broccoli and green beans, saute for 5 mins in coconut oil. then place one large spoon of the thai green paste in with the vegetables, Mix well and cook for 5 minutes.

4. pour in the coconut milk and chickpeas and any extra salt to taste.

5. Mix in mangetout and thai basil right at the end for 3 minuets of cooking.

Serve with rice (i like to use brown rice) and garnish with fresh spring onion, coriander and red sweet chillies (or spicy)!
