Vegan Thai Green Curry
Thai food is one of the world's best, and nothing beats a creamy, fragrant and spicy bowl of goodness.
This easy vegetable green curry takes is ready in 20 minutes and easy to prepare with simple ingredients. It can even be made with whatever veggies you have available.
It's herbal ingredients like lime leaves that make it stand out from other curries
With the fresh aromatic ingredients used in South East Asian curries, I’ll always be an advocate of making the curry pastes from scratch because it’s not possible to capture that flavour in jars.

TOP TIP: I use a red pepper flakes to give the recipe some heat as I don’t usually have fresh chilis on hand. Use fresh Thai red or green chilis if you have them and want to add some heat to the recipe, otherwise skip those and the chili flakes.
