Author Notes

This is a fantastically flavoursome vegan-friendly thai green curry, which really pleases the palate. This dish serves 10 which makes it ideal for serving to friends and family. It’s actually that good you could eat it all yourself, over a few days of course. The recipe can be found here - —Nikki Brown

Yum yum yum!! I am literally writing this review between helpings pf this delicious curry. I admit to cheating and purchasing the green curry in the supermarket, but then followed the rest of the recipe as far as seasoning and crisping the tofu and shallots. The cayenne and salt add so much to the shallots! I added bamboo shoots, carrots, red bell pepper, snap peas, and those tiny corn from the Thai section as the eggplant at the store wasn't so desirable. Served over basmati rice. I'm going back for more...delicious!
