trader joe’s thai green curry
I didn’t always like curry. In fact, I think I pretty much hated it. My theory is that in my old age my taste buds are dulling (or maturing) so that things I hated before are not as overpowering as they used to be. Included in this list: cilantro and curry.
My favorite is yellow curry but I found green curry sauce at Trader Joe’s and figured I’d give it a shot.
- 1/2 lb of chicken (I used two medium sized boneless/skinless thighs)
- 1/2 of a medium onion
- 1/2 cup of sugar snap peas
- 1 medium potato
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 cup of Trader Joe’s Thai Green Curry Simmering Sauce
- olive oil for sauteeing
I chopped up everything except the snap peas and sauteed the garlic, onions, and chicken in the olive oil. I boiled the potatoes in water so that they would cook faster. When the potatoes were tender, I added them to saute. I threw in the snap peas last and pour the curry sauce in. Let the whole thing simmer for 5-7 minutes over medium heat.
The curry is heavy on the kaffir lime and the cilantro so if you like those two flavors, you’ll like the sauce. Each bottle makes 6 servings. The recipe above is for about 2 servings. I’d def buy again (until they come out with a yellow curry sauce in which case green is out of luck). As always, serve over steaming Jasmine rice.
