Thai Green Curry with Butternut Squash and Yellow Peppers

thai green curry with butternut squash and yellow peppers

Serves 6

Spicy green curry paste pairs perfectly with the sweetness of butternut squash and bell peppers. For a striking color contrast, spoon over black forbidden rice or red Himalayan rice.
  • 1 ½Tbs. vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped (2 cups)
  • 2 yellow bell peppers, diced (2½ cups)
  • 2 Tbs. green curry paste
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (2 tsp.)
  • 3 cups cubed peeled butternut squash
  • 1 13.5-oz. can light coconut milk
  • 2 cups firmly packed spinach leaves
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • ¼ cup chopped basil

1. Heat oil in pot over medium heat. Add onion, and sauté 5 to 7 minutes. Add bell peppers, and cook 3 minutes. Stir in curry paste and garlic, and cook 
1 minute. Add butternut squash and coconut milk, and bring to a simmer. Partially cover pot, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 20 minutes.

2. Place spinach, cilantro, and basil in blender with 1/4 cup water; blend until smooth. Stir into curry mixture, and cook 1 minute to allow flavors to meld.

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.

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!

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!
