  • 1/2 eggplant, skinned chopped (I eat the seeds, but you can de-seed if desired)
  • 2 zucchinis, skinned chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • handful cremini mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 medium yellow pepper, chopped de-seeded (or red, or green, I like yellow peppers in curries though)
  • handful of chopped scallions
  • 1 cup dry white rice (brown is good too)
  • 2-3 tbsp Thai Red Curry Paste
  • Sriracha sauce
  • 1 tsp curry yellow curry powder
  • salt to taste

Start rice according to package directions.

Take onions and peppers and toss them in a heated pan or wok with a bit of oil, or whatever fat you prefer, salt to taste, and stir fry for a few minutes until the onions are translucent. Add the rest of the veggies, salt, then cover. Cook until zucchini is soft when speared with a fork.

Add veggies to prepared rice and combine. Next, add Red Curry paste, curry powder, then add sriracha sauce to taste. You can put it back on the heat if you want to let the flavors sit a bit longer, but I normally eat it straight out of the pan.

This will make about 4-5 large servings. I think next time I'll add some coconut milk.

Just want to remind everyone that Thai curry pastes often contain fish so watch out!

I'll list the brand I use later on, it is fish free! I ran out, and I can't remember off the top of my head the name on the label.

Addie, I LOVE the red and green curry paste by Thai Kitchen. It's the only pre-made one I use! Sometimes I just can't make it all from scratch. I add way more than they suggest to make curries, and also add fresh ginger, lemongrass, garlic, shallot, lime juice, cilantro, coconut milk and nutritional yeast. With those ingredients and any veggies you like and chickpeas or tofu or seitan, you are set!

That is indeed the brand I use! I just stocked up on the red and green today. Haven't tried the green yet, but I'm excited to try it out!

Thanks for the avatar love! I was Rosie for Halloween. Only 1 person guessed right, mostly everyone thought I was a gardener. Harumph.

I've seen Thai kitchen in so many discount stores, I'm really glad to know so many like it!
I've only used powdered curry with added ginger and coconut milk. Definitly will try this!

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good

Glad to hear the reviews of Thai Kitchen are good. One reason I never picked any up was because I just figured store bought in a jar wouldn't be to good. Looks like I'll add it to my grocery list!

Thai kitchen is wonderful

Nothing tastes as good as compassion feels.
