Green Curry Vegetables

Making things from scratch isn’t for everyone, especially during the week when we all tend to be busier. I love trying out new pre-made sauces/packages and making them my own. Green Curry Vegetables – ready in 20 minutes.  Delish!

Kanokwan Curry Vegetables

This recipe can be adapted with any vegetables you have in your fridge and served on its own, on top of noodles, quinoa or rice. Whatever you have on hand. And of course, this would make a great side dish too.

Kanokwan Curry Vegetables

I based this green curry vegetable recipe loosely on the recipe provided on the back of the package of the Kanokwan Green Curry Paste. I purchased the product from T&T Grocery Store, a predominantly Asian grocery store in Toronto/GTA.

The dish was creamy, flavorful, spicy and filling.  The coconut milk, a non-dairy product, adds a subtle mellow (not overpowering) coconut flavor.

I added cayenne pepper as my husband and I love heat. But for those of you who don’t want to pant while you eat, I highly recommend keeping that ingredient out as the curry paste is already quite spicy.


Tailor To Your Taste

  • You can turn this into a non-vegetarian dish by adding left over cooked chicken, shrimp or beef when you add the vegetables to the curry.
  • Alternatively, if you are vegetarian and looking for some protein, add some cubes of firm tofu when cooking the mushrooms.
