Yeah, how many servings?..

Suppose all you guys know that green curry paste almost always contains either shrimp paste or fish sauce. Last time I checked, that stuff doesn't come from plants!

Actually ChefMarcus - most readily available green curries at major super markets are Vegan - including the easy to fine Thai Kithcen brand - and it is marked easily on the package in case you're worried: Vegan. Red and yellow curries often contain anchovys and shrimp pasted and are marked as such, hence this being a green curry recipe. Vegetarians and Vegans alike can enjoy this without worry (and it does come from plants). Tasty!

Thank you. Want to try Green Curry. Sounds great.

I made this tonight with riced cauliflower instead of rice. DELICIOUS!!

This is yummy!

Thai Kitchen's green curry is Vegan and Gluten Free. I made this tonight and felt like it lacked a little punch, so I added a bit of siracha and some fresh ground ginger. It helped. I also like my curry a bit on the soupy side, so I added more milk.
