Make this Gut-Friendly Thai Green Curry

A few of you have been asking for this recipe since the Bosch Cooking Class I hosted, so here it is-  my Gut-Friendly Thai Green Curry Recipe.

The Thai Green Curry paste is made from scratch in a matter of minutes and all you need is a blender or food processor to create the paste. I tend to avoid store-bought sauces and pastes as they are loaded with garlic, onions and preservatives, which are a big no-no if you suffer from IBS. By making the paste from scratch, I avoid this.

After the paste is made, you move on to the making the actual curry, which takes less than 20 minutes.

Feel free to use any green veggies you like, swopping out according to your taste preferences. This a great Meat Free Monday dish, but you could also add chicken or prawns if you prefer.

When we made this Gut-Friendly Thai Green Curry at Bosch, we used peas, but I really prefer edamame beans as they are high on protein.

I purchased my gluten-free soya sauce (tamari) from Seven Seas Fisheries but you can also buy at Nature’s Choice. 

This Gut-Friendly Thai Green Curry is:

  • Preservative Free
  • Gluten-Free
  • Dairy-Free
  • Vegan
  • FODMAP Friendly (meaning safe for IBS if eaten in moderation)
