Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Yields: 4 servings
1 lb. unpeeled red potatoes (3 medium sized potatoes), diced into 2 inch cubes
½ lb. green beans, 2 inch cut
¼ cup Thai Green Curry Paste (I use Thai Kitchen)
1 cup lite coconut milk
½ cup nondairy milk
1 tablespoon maple syrup (or preferred sweetener)
2 teaspoons lime juice
3 teaspoons cornstarch
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
½ teaspoon sea salt or to taste
1 onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, chopped
¼ cup basil leaves, chopped
1 cup peas, fresh or frozen
1 carrot, diced
4 cups cooked brown rice
Steam the potatoes and green beans until tender. Drain and set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk the curry paste, coconut milk, nondairy milk, salt, cornstarch, maple syrup, and lime juice until ingredients are thoroughly blended. Set aside.
In a large fry pan, sauté the onion in a small amount of water or vegetable broth until tender. Add the remaining ingredients: potatoes, green beans, and curry mixture simmering over low-medium heat for 12-15 minutes. Serve over brown rice or whole grain pasta.
Hints: You can use any type of potato in this recipe but we prefer red potatoes for this dish because they are less starchy and stand up a little better in a sauce.
