Step By Step Thai Vegan Curry

Do you remember how a few posts back, I confessed that I wasn’t really a chef? Well, this is a perfect example of that. Tonight I cooked vegan curry with a ready-made paste (gasp) AND it was delicious. Here’s how:

STEP ONE: gather your ingredients
1 preservative-free Thai curry paste
1 small can coconut milk
1 onion
3-4 small potatoes or sunchokes
1 large carrot
1 small broccoli head
some snap peas
1 punnet white mushrooms
(all veggies chopped small-medium)
1/2 cup raw peanuts
small bunch of fresh parsley or coriander
STEP TWO: heat a pan, add paste, 1 cup coconut milk and 1 cup water, bring to a boil. 

STEP THREE: add onion, sunchokes and carrots then cover and cook for 15-25 minutes.

STEP FOUR: add broccoli then cover and cook for 5 minutes.

Step FIVE: add snap peas and mushrooms and cook for a further 2-3 minutes.
TO FINISH: top with peanuts and herbs.



      1. 150 yen…that’s not bad at all! And it’s so lucky that your neighbor grows cilantro. I can’t live without it, but it’s always a bit tricky to find when I’m in Japan. If I decide to live in Japan I’ll probably start having to grow some myself hehe

      2. Actually, I just got back to Vancouver because I have a job I need to tie up. (I’ll be catching up on Japan-related posts for a while though. I have so many photos!)
        I was there for a couple months to basically figure out what I want to do next with my life. I’ll be returning in a couple months, and probably will live there for a while. Don’t know for how long yet, though!

      3. Ohhh that’s so exciting! Please bring back QIA cereal for me lol seriously pleasssseeeee hehe <3 Best of luck with whatever you do! I am still trying to figure out what I'm doing here and after! Argh


      4. Haha oh I love that stuff! They have big bags of the cranberry vanilla one at the Costco here. As awesome as Japanese food is, there are definitely things I miss. Cereal is one thing…and hummus :)

      5. I’ll see what I can do :P
        I’ve never found Lara bars over there either, and good alcohol like ouzo/arak…but the thing that maybe gets me the most is the lack of real hot sauce, spices, and things like lentils and chickpeas. How do people live without them?!

      6. I know…nut butters are unaffordable. And the whole point of loading up on oatmeal and beans is that they’re cheap, but in Japan they’re a luxury item! But…then again in Vancouver a bag of real Japanese rice is $50, it’s almost impossible to find any nori other than Korean nori, and anpan is made in Chinese bakeries so there’s often lard in it. I want everything, everywhere! Hehehe :P

      7. Yes, tofu is especially amazing here and edamame!! Mmmmm I love baking with okara (soy pulp) I’ve decided it’s the thing I will miss the very most about Japan lol
