Thai Red Curry

Have you heard of Pinterest?  I saw lots of bloggers joining, but resisted because I was worried that yet another website would suck up my free time.  However, recently I realized that it would be a great way to keep track of recipes I want to try, so I finally joined.

I only have a few recipes pinned so far, but it was still helpful tonight as I tried to decide what to make for dinner...someday I will get back to menu planning in advance.  From my "Main Dish Recipes" board, I chose Thai Red Curry from Kitchen Runway.

Chris and I both loved this recipe!  I made a few changes based on what I had on hand, and of course omitted the chicken.  You'll see sweet potatoes in the photo below, but I didn't end up adding them because I cooked them too long :(

Printer-Friendly Recipe

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 zucchini, cut into 1/4 inch half moons
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
11oz Thai Red Curry Sauce (I used Trader Joe's brand)
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 cup frozen green peas
1 red bell pepper, julienne
shredded coconut for garnish
1 cup jasmati rice
2 cups water

This recipe was spicier than I anticipated but it wasn't too killer, and that's coming from someone who really dislikes spicy food.  A glass of milk with dinner helped immensely.  I only have two main dishes left to try on Pinterest, so I'd better post this blog entry and start browsing for more recipes :)
