Thai Green Curry | ONLINE RECIPES


Green Thai Curry

I bought some green curry-paste at the local Asian grocery-shop just the other day.
(I made sure it was vegan and palm-oil free)
And, because I'm a pasty white girl, and I have no clue how to make such wonderful gastronomic orgasms,
I googled recipes.

The choice fell on one on rasamalaysia.com (not vegan)
I've been having some trouble re-creating a vegan version, of one of my all-time fav restaurant dishes; the green curry. And have been (until this moment) convinced that I have just been doing it wrong; and that's why it hasn't turned out even remotely similar to what I fell in love with before going vegan, and basically stopped being able to eat out, because I live in a tiny town, in the middle of nowhere, and everything here caters to hungry hungry carnivores.
No but for real; WHY, do people put MILK in shit that you'd NEVER in a million years NEED to put milk in? Like PESTO. WTF.
Okay, rant over.
Back to the recipe.
After veganising this recipe, I realize, oh, you dumdum
THAI green curry, and, CHINESE green curry
ARE DIFFERENT THINGS.
My bad xD

Did I mention I'm a pasty white girl who doesn't know what she's doing?

But, for you out there, in the vast internet-verse, 
who actually INTEND on making vegan THAI green curry;
here's what I did to veganise the recipe linked from the website mentioned above.

Instead of chicken
1 green paprika pepper
1 yellow paprika pepper
1 red paprika pepper
2 medium-small carrots (that, let's face it HAD to be used in this recipe
not just cause they're awesome in curries, they are, but also 
for not going bad in my fridge reasons xD )
half a green squash

I de-veined the peppers, peeled the carrots
and cut all the veggies into nice strips

Instead of fish-sauce
1 and a half tablespoons of soy-sauce

I also just used half a tiny teaspoon of chili-powder instead of actual chillies.
Not for any particular well-thought-out reason, but because I forgot to get fresh ones x)

I hope you enjoyed my vegan take on that particular thai curry recipe
