Easy & healthy – thai green curry

I thought I’d post something different & decided I would post a recipe. I try to cook a nice meal every night for my boyfriend & I but sometimes I just need something super quick after a long day  at uni or if I have too much work… tonight was one of those nights. I made one of my favourite recipes, Thai Green Curry. This recipe is so quick and simple & great for vegetarians, vegans, etc. (I added chicken but obviously you can just throw in any vegetables you like.

So the ingredients I used for my version of thai green curry is:
– Potatoes
– Green beans
– Eggplant
– Chicken breast
– Light coconut milk
– Thai green curry paste (this paste is also so easy to make from scratch but because I didn’t have time I used pre made paste)

– Brown Rice

Chop up the vegetables. I cut the green beans in half, the potatoes about 1.5cm wide & the eggplants about an inch.

I cooked about 1 cup of brown rice for two people.

Add a tiny bit of coconut oil to the pan (the pre made paste already has quite a bit of oil in it so you really only need just less than half a teaspoon)

Put about 3 tablespoons of the paste & fry for about 2 minutes.
Add in chicken & potatoes & let that fry for another 5 minutes.

Then add in half a can of coconut milk & 1/4 cup of water. Let that simmer for another 5 minutes.

Add the remaining vegetables to your mix, let that simmer for a further 5 minutes
Then add the other half of your coconut milk & another 1/4 cup of water & let that simmer for 10 minutes.
