Thai Fresh Vegan Red Curry

Gluten-FreeVeganDairy-FreeVegetarian

This fresh and hearty Vegan Thai Curry is a great way to make everyone happy while including all your vegetables.

Think ginger, lemon, fresh herbs, and different textures vegetables.

Dive into it! Stir in all the forgotten vegetables in your fridge, don’t let the lack of a couple spices stop you.

The important ingredients

I suggest you to get a good Coconut Milk and Fresh Ginger which make a great difference in the final result.

It is very important to use fragrant ingredients and full fat coconut milk.

Ginger is a must! Of course fresh ginger is the deal, but if you only have ginger powder and want to save a couple of minutes, go ahead!

I have tried it and it works perfectly.

Remember that besides its rich and fragrant flavor it has countless properties

Some of the Benefits of Ginger

Relieves Indigestion: if chronic indigestion is part of your life, ginger could bring some relief. Ginger before meals may make your system empty faster, leaving less time for food to sit and cause problems.

Fights Germs: helping your body ward off germs. They’re especially good at halting growth of bacteria like E.coli

Promotes Oral health: its antibacterial power may also brighten your smile. Active compounds in ginger keep oral bacteria from growing and prevents gum infection.

Protects Against Disease: it helps your body fight diseases of the lungs, plus promote healthy aging.

So it is always a great idea to add it to your meals, and beverages such as smoothies and tea.

If you use traditional commercial Red Curry Paste, it’s very likely that it has shrimp paste. I use the widely known Cock Brand from Thailand which doesn’t have animal ingredients.

Optional Add Bok Choy

If using Bok Choy, add during the last 3 minutes of heat. It is mostly water so that it will turn into nothing. It doesn’t have much flavor, so it will not change it, it will only add texture..

2 thoughts on “Thai Fresh Vegan Red Curry

  1. Just a quick note – the thai red curry paste that you mention has shrimp paste in it. So it’s not vegan or plant-based. There are some very strict vegan/vegetarian diets that people follow for health/religious reasons and so it’s important to mention that.

    1. Hey, thank you so much for the catch. I found your comment strange because I use a vegan red curry paste, so went ahead and checked the link, and found out that the pot is sooooo similar to the one I use (which is vegan), that I added the wrong link. Fixed! Thank you again!
