Spring Pea Coconut Curry Servings: 2
You'll need
  • 1 13.5-oz can coconut milk
  • ½ cup chicken stock
  • 2 tsp green curry paste
  • 1 pint of fresh spring peas or ½ bag frozen
  • 1 Tbsp sugar (brown, cane, or coconut)
  • 2 Tbsp fish sauce
  • ½ lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • ½ cup pea shoots
  • ¼ cup cilantro leaves
  • 1 lime cut into wedges
1. Place coconut milk and chicken stock in a pot, and cook over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes. Whisk in curry paste and add half of the peas, along with sugar and fish sauce; cook another 3 minutes.
2. Pour mixture into a blender (or use a handheld blender), and blend until smooth. Return to pot and heat again over medium-high. (Don’t boil.)
