Thai-Inspired Red Curry

Thai-Inspired Red Curry: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 3
This makes a great sauce for boneless, skinless chicken breast, baked tofu, seared lean steak or broiled fish. You can eat it on its own as you would a soup, or with a little brown basmati rice.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup light coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth or chicken stock
  • 1 tsp red curry paste
  • 1 tsp minced fresh ginger
  • 2 Tbs fish sauce (nam pla) (optional)
  • 2 tsp brown sugar (optional)
  • 1 cup canned diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 cup (about 3 ounces) Japanese or Chinese eggplant, cut into 1/2-inch-thick half-rounds
  • 1 cup (about 4 ounces) green beans, cut into 2-inch lengths
  • 2 Tbs minced fresh basil (Thai basil, if available)

Directions

  • In a medium saucepan, whisk together the coconut milk, broth or stock, red curry paste, and ginger. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce the heat, and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes.
  • Stir in the fish sauce and brown sugar, if used. Add the diced tomatoes and eggplant. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, until the eggplant is tender.
  • Add the green beans and simmer until tender. Serve hot, topped with minced fresh basil.

Kitchen Tip: Thai-Inspired Red Curry will keep for only about a day or two, and is best eaten fresh. If you need to store it, refrigerate it in a tightly covered container and reheat it gently.
