How about a flavourful, tangy and creamy Thai green curry as a gorgeously cozy weeknight meal idea? 🌱

Happy Monday! Anyone else get excited for the week ahead? Like every Monday is a new start/beginning full of endless possibilities! Honestly I start my week off with so many plans and then I blink and the week is over πŸ˜…
Curry is pretty much a go to weeknight meal in our house, because we can use up random veg or protein in the house, it takes 15 minutes and it’s DELISH. Rich and I do tend to get a little greedy using both tofu AND prawns πŸ™ˆ what can I say? We are hungry people πŸ˜…

Thai Green Curry with Lemongrass Rice
β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
RICE
-1 cup white rice
-1 1/2 cups water
-1 pinch salt
-3 dried lemongrass stalks
CURRY
-150 g prawns OR 1 pack extra firm tofu (cubed)
-1 tbsp sesame oil
-3 kefir lime leaves
-2 stalks dried lemon grass
-2 cloves garlic, minced
-1 thumb ginger, grated
-1 chilli, minced
-2 tbsp fresh coriander, finely chopped
-1 cup sliced chestnut mushrooms (or other veg)
-OPTION: 3 tbsp Thai green curry paste OR double these ingredients to make your own flavourful paste (lemongrass, kefir, ginger, garlic, Chili, coriander)
-1 can full fat coconut milk
-200 g spinach
-lime and spring onion to garnish

1. Rice the rice with lukewarm water 3-4 times. Drain and add the allocated water to boil. Season with salt and add the lemongrass stalks. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer for 15 minutes.

2. If using prawns, heat in a pan until fully pink and cooked. Set aside. (If using tofu, skip this step)

3. Using the same pan (unwashed- this is to give that β€˜fish sauce’ depth of flavour) heat sesame oil with the kefir lime leaves and lemongrass for about a minute. Than add garlic, ginger, and chilli to the pan (if not using a store bought paste, add double these ingredients). Allow to cook until fragrant and add your veg- I used chestnut mushrooms. Cook until softened and add the coriander, doubling the coriander amount if not using a paste. If using a paste, add now and allow to fry for 2 min.

4. Add the coconut milk, bring to a soft boil and reduce to a simmer (add tofu here if using). Simmer for 5 minutes and add spinach. Wilt and serve
