Vegetarian Thai Green Curry – A very easy to make, vegetarian Thai curry made with Green curry paste and coconut milk and lots of vegetables. This is definitely one of the easiest recipes. It goes well with steamed rice or noodles and makes a healthy quick lunch or dinner. I love Thai Curries because of their exotic flavors and a yummy blend of spices and herbs.
What if I told you that this curry was made by my Son and not me. Yes, that’s True :-):-)
Nowadays kids are at home because of school vacations. Both my sons are equally fond of cooking and many Sundays are spent in the kitchen with all 4 of us contributing to making lunch or dinner.
My son made this Curry from start to finish. He even ordered the veggies online himself to make this.
My job was to cut and clean the vegetables and cook the Noodles. And click the photos of course 😉
