As promised the Meatless Friday Dinner Recipes continue during Lent. Last week I made Mushroom Risotto in case you missed it check it out, very yummy. This one you are going to LOVE! Especially since I’ve made it VERY easy. I make this same recipe with thinly slice Chicken Brest also, it’s very versatile. I change which vegetables I am using depending on what is in season or on sale, DUH 🙂 I’m a BIG fan of Trader Joe’s… They have many of their own version with the different ethnic foods they carry. I know I’m a picky eater, so I’m very extreme with my likes and dislikes… SORRY I’M NOT SORRY. They either nail it… Or they do whatever it is that they did with their “version” of Pirate’s Booty… Which in itself is a travesty… If you can’t get knock off Pirate’s Booty correct, then don’t do it, it’s just not right. Back to the subject, with this Yellow Curry, Trader Joe’s or TJ’s as I like to call it, NAILED IT! Their Red Curry is equally perfected I’m just a bigger fan of Yellow Curry in general.
THAI YELLOW CURRY RECIPE
- 2 TBSN Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 Yellow Onion Thinly Sliced
- 1 Cup Russet Potato Peeled & Cubed
- 1 Medium Carrot Peeled & Thinly Sliced
- 1 Red Bell Pepper Thinly Sliced
- 8 Oz White Mushrooms Quartered
- 2 Bottles Trader Joe’s Yellow Curry
- 1 1/2 Cups Broccoli Steamed
- 1/2 Can Corn Kernels
- 1 Can Low Fat Coconut Milk
- 1 Cup French Green Beans Steamed
- 2 Inch Piece of Ginger Finely Chopped (Optional)
- Fresh Chopped Basil (Optional)
- Jasmine Rice or Brown Rice
In a Medium or Large Pot over Medium heat add Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Add Onion and Potato, cook for 2-3 Minutes. Add Carrot and cook another 5 Minutes.
Add Red Bell Pepper, stir for 2 Minutes, add Mushrooms and cook for 5 Minutes.
This is what the bottles look like from Trader Joe’s, their Coconut Milk is a good price as well.
Add Yellow Curry Sauce and a half Bottle of Water to each Jar used. Mix in Broccoli.
Add Corn Kernels and desired amount of Coconut Milk. This all depends on the amount of spice you like. Just add a little at a time until it is exactly to your liking. Cook for 5 Minutes.
Add Green Beans ( I like to cut them into smaller pieces so they are easily spooned when eating). Bring to a light Boil, cover with your lid and simmer for 20 Minutes.
If you like a little extra flavor/spice (Not for the kiddos) add Chopped Ginger before you bring to a Boil. This is one of my Italian Measurements… 🙂 I added “this much”… 🙂
And Drummmm Rolllll…. Add your fresh Basil now if you’d like….
Then you serve over Rice, Bread whatever you’d like. This Jasmine Rice is Pre-Cooked and just has to be Microwaved for 3 Minutes (Great for Work Lunches). You can also use Brown Rice which is the Mister’s preference.
My other favorite (I gave up wheat/flour for Lent so this is me day dreaming) thing to serve Curry over is Naan. Trader Joe’s has a great fresh Naan for $3.69.
