  • ¼ cup finely chopped cilantro stems, plus ¼ cup chopped cilantro leaves, for garnish

  • 5 oz. dry fettuccine
  • 5 cups broccoli florets
  • 6 lime wedges, for garnish

what's a substitution for the curry paste ?

If you are cooking for vegetarians dont forget to check the ingredient of the Thai curry paste which sometimes contains shrimps paste.

I 1.5x and 2x the dry ingredients and paste and it was still extremely bland.

I used half the curry paste as my family has mild tastes but I could have gone up a little. We found it had lots of good flavour! Took me an hour to make, start to finish including chopping.

Made this tonight & it was lacking flavor. I could feel the heat from the red curry paste & dried curry powder. I splashed some Bragg's aminos on it & that helped a little. Should have grated a little ginger in it & next time I will marinate the tofu in some Braggs, bake it then mix it in for some flavor.

Just made with green curry paste, coconut cream and cilantro frozen cubes (from trader Joe's) and penne pasta (of course all substitutions for what I had on hand). Whoa did the green chili paste have kick. Even with the full fat coconut cream I had to add some Greek yogurt on top to cut the heat. Would definitely make this again BUT with either red or yellow curry paste instead....which ever is most mild.
