I’m a big fan of quick and easy curry recipes and this 5 Ingredient Green Curry is one of the easiest. The most important ingredients are the Thai green curry paste and the coconut milk, after that you can really choose whatever protein or vegetables you like.


I’ve used broccoli in this recipe because the florets soak up the curry which can make them delicious little flavour explosions, and red capsicum because I love the way the red contrasts against the green curry. It’s also great to use a variety of different coloured vegetables in cooking because each colour provides lots of different vitamins, all of which are necessary for health.


Now I’m not big on spicy food and I’ll admit with the amount of curry paste used in this recipe I definitely feel the heat, but I have been told I’m a bit weak when it comes to spice. In any case, the curry paste adds a beautiful flavour and a nice punch of heat.
