Green Curry Stir-Fry with Cashews

Green Curry Stir-Fry with Cashews

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

Cashews are a classic in stir-fries. Here, they’re sprinkled over a medley of mushrooms and green beans.
  • 1 Tbs. peanut oil
  • ½ cup thinly sliced onion
  • 1 12-oz. pkg. sliced mushrooms
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (1 tsp.)
  • 1 tsp. minced fresh ginger
  • 1 lb. green beans, cut into thirds
  • ½ cup golden raisins
  • 2 Tbs. light coconut milk
  • 1½ Tbs. green curry paste
  • 1 Tbs. lemon juice
  • 1 Tbs. low-sodium tamari sauce
  • ½ cup roasted salted cashews, coarsely chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro

1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and mushrooms, and season with salt, if desired. Cover, and cook 6 minutes, or until mushrooms begin to brown.

2. Uncover pan, stir in garlic and ginger, and sauté 2 minutes. Add green beans and raisins, and stir-fry 3 minutes.

3. Whisk together coconut milk, curry paste, lemon juice, and tamari in small bowl. Add curry mixture to skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 2 minutes, or until sauce has thickened. Garnish with cashews and cilantro.

Tasty. Made a couple of process changes. Didn't cover the mushrooms while sautéing in order to get more browning. Did add some water (2-3 T) with the beans and cooked longer maybe 5 mins as I thought they were too crunchy. Added more coconut milk, about 1/3 c total to bring up the saucey, creamy profile.

Not bad, nice little kick with the green curry. Will try it out with Jilary's variation next.

I made this recipe this weekend and I doubled it to have enough servings. I made a few minor changes such as using coconut oil instead of peanut, 1/2 green beans and 1/2 snow peas and I replaced the raisins with dried cranberries. This is definitely a stir-fry and less of a curry. It's very good and the dried cranberries and cashews are wonderful with it! I was really hoping for more of a coconut curry flavor, but as a stir-fry I would recommend this recipe and make it again. I served this with madagascar pink rice and it's very filling.
