PREP TIME – 45 MINS
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 onion, chopped
3cm piece of ginger, peeled and finely chopped
2 cloves of crushed garlic
70g Thai curry paste
400g tin coconut milk
200g Tenderstem broccoli
150g baby corn, halved
1 bunch of spring onions, sliced
Juice of 1 lime
1 handful of coriander, chopped
1 medium pumpkin or squash, cut into 2cm pieces
1 tbsp fish sauce
Rice or noodles
Heat the oil and saute the onion, ginger and garlic for about five minutes until the onion has softened but not coloured.
Once they’ve started to soften, now’s the time to stir in the curry paste and cook for a minute.
Stir in the pumpkin or squash, then add the fish sauce, coconut milk and 200ml water. Simmer uncovered for 15 minutes. (Carnivores, here’s where you’d add your diced chicken breast.)
Add the broccoli, baby corn and spring onions and continue to cook for about five minutes until the vegetables are tender. Finish off by stirring in the lime juice and coriander.
Serve with boiled rice or noodles.
