I could tell that my body needed rest and a healthy dose of anti-inflammatory, disease-fighting food.
So of course, this Thai green curry was on the dinner menu. It’s vegetarian and SO easy to make!
And guess what? It works. I make this recipe and my healing chicken soup every single time I’m feeling under the weather. The next day I wake up feeling a little better. Thus, this recipe was crowned the name ‘healing thai green curry’… with a few other descriptors in there too, I suppose.
Before we get into just how amazing and incredible this recipe is, I want to let you know that 1) you don’t absolutely need to have lemongrass to make this dish fabulous and b) I need you to make this recipe immediately. I SAID IMMEDIATELY. OK?
What is green curry?
Green curry is a very popular curry dish in Thai cuisine and differs from both red and yellow curries because of its vibrant color & flavors. Thai green curry paste gets its color from green chilies and herbs like cilantro and Thai basil. Traditional green curry paste can also have lemongrass, garlic, shallots shrimp paste and even more herbs and spices.
In my take on Thai green curry we’re using many of those delicious, nourishing ingredients, but are simplifying a bit by using store bought green curry paste.
Is it spicy?
Nope! Between red, yellow and green curry, green is considered the mildest (with red being the hottest). However, there are always easy ways to spice it up to your taste preference!
The healing powers of this Thai green curry
Not only is this Thai green curry recipe delicious, but it’s also chock full of anti-inflammatory ingredients making it perfect for winter and cold season.
- Garlic: Studies have actually found garlic to be effective against fighting colds. It also has been known to fight infections naturally. I actually eat a clove raw when I feel sick. Tony thinks it’s weird because he’s the one who has to kiss me.
- Ginger: A true tummy tamer aka really good for when you have an upset stomach. Put it in your smoothie or put it in this curry.
- Lemongrass: The leaves of this plant are often used to make medicine. Its oil is often used in aromatherapy too. Check out how else lemongrass is commonly used here. I love the flavor it gives this curry and I promise you will too. Of course, you can always leave it out if it’s unavailable to you or if you don’t like it.
- Turmeric: Super trendy for the past few years, but always delicious and a known anti-inflammatory spice. I love the brightness it adds to this dish. I recommend using fresh turmeric.
- Thai Green Curry Paste: You can get this at most grocery stores, but if they don’t have it — you can order it from Amazon.
What you’ll need to make vegetarian Thai green curry
Besides being vegan and gluten free, this comforting Thai green curry is filled with the most delicious flavor combination I think I’ve ever tasted. I could proclaim my love for it over and over again, and if you trust me for recipes, then you know you need to make it too. Here’s what you’ll need to make it:
- Herbs and spices: the key to this green curry recipe is all of those flavorful herbs & spices that I mentioned above. You’ll need garlic, lemongrass, ginger, fresh basil, cilantro, green curry paste and turmeric.
- Veggies: this recipe is packed with wonderful veggies like red bell pepper, carrots, green onion & peas.
- Protein: we’re keeping this Thai green curry vegan & vegetarian by using chickpeas!
- For the broth: you’ll simmer all of those veggies and spices in lite coconut milk, vegetarian broth and a little soy sauce.
- For the rice: don’t forget that coconut infused rice! You’ll just need a bit of coconut oil and short grain brown rice.
Customize this recipe
Good news: this Thai green curry recipe is super easy to customize with ingredients you have on-hand! Here are suggestions and swaps I can recommend:
- No lemongrass? No problem. This dish will still be delicious without it.
- Swap your protein. This curry would be amazing with tofu, and if you’re not following a plant-based diet feel free to try chicken or shrimp!
- Mix up your veggies. Feel free to change up the veggies with what you have on-hand. Broccoli, mushrooms and even some spinach would be perfect.
- Add a little umami. Deepen the flavor of this Thai green curry with some peanut butter (yes, peanut butter!) or fish sauce.
- Change your grain. This would be delicious served with quinoa, cauliflower rice or even rice noodles!
- Kick up the heat. If you like spicy flavors feel free to add in some sriracha, red chili paste or your fav hot sauce.
Storing & freezing tips
In the refrigerator
- To store: store this Thai green curry in the refrigerator for up to 4 days in an airtight container.
- To reheat: simply reheat the curry in the microwave or on the stovetop until heated through.
In the freezer
- To freeze: be sure to not overcook the vegetables. Let the curry cool completely before transferring to a freezer safe bag or container. Freeze for up to 2 months. I would not recommend freezing the curry with rice.
- To reheat: thaw the Thai green curry in the refrigerator. While the curry is thawing, feel free to make the coconut brown rice, cauliflower rice or quinoa to serve with it. Reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave for 2 minutes until heated through.
So what are you waiting for? It’s time to make this fabulous dish. I love to do it for meal prep and cook everything up on a Sunday for myself, then divide into containers. I’ve also included an easy recipe for a delicious toasted coconut brown rice that I think pairs well with the curry.

Healing Lemongrass Chickpea Thai Green Curry
Wonderful Thai green curry recipe made with fragrant lemongrass, healing ginger, garlic & turmeric, and a boost of plant-based protein from chickpeas. This vegetarian Thai green curry is the ultimate bowl of healthy comfort food to eat when you're feeling under the weather and is delicious with coconut infused brown rice!
- For the brown rice:
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- 1 cup uncooked short grain brown rice
- For the Thai green curry:
- 2 teaspoons olive oil or coconut oil
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 3/4 cup diced green onion
- 2 stalks lemongrass, tender white inner bulb only, minced
- 1 heaping cup diced carrots (about 3 large carrots)
- 1 tablespoon freshly minced ginger
- 3 tablespoons finely diced fresh basil
- 2 tablespoons green curry paste
- 1/2 teaspoon turmeric (or 1/2 tablespoon freshly ground turmeric)
- 1 (15 oounce) can lite coconut milk
- 1/2 cup vegetarian broth (or water)
- 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
- 1 tablespoon gluten free soy sauce (or coconut aminos)
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
- 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 1 cup frozen peas
- To garnish: Cilantro, green onion & hot sauce
To make the brown rice: Add one cup of brown rice to a pan along with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil. Toast rice over medium heat for 5 minutes until fragrant. Next and 2 1/2 cups of water to a pot; bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for about 45 minutes.
Heat oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Once oil is hot, add in garlic, green onion, lemongrass, carrots, fresh ginger, and diced fresh basil. Stir fry for about 5 minute until the onions begin to slightly brown. Next add in green curry paste and turmeric and stir for 30 seconds to release flavors.
Add in coconut milk, vegetarian broth, chickpeas, soy sauce, lime juice, salt and red bell pepper. Stir well to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for about 20 minutes, or until carrots are tender. Right before serving, stir in frozen peas. Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary.
Serve over brown rice in a bowl and garnish with fresh cilantro, green onion and a dash of hot sauce if you like things spicy. Serves 4.
*You can leave out the lemongrass and still get fabulous flavor! I know it can be difficult to find. I usually get mine from Whole Foods.
If you'd like more protein in this dish, add another can of chickpeas, or if you aren't vegetarian/vegan, you can add 1/2 pound of chopped cooked chicken breast.
To freeze: be sure to not overcook the vegetables. Let the curry cool completely before transferring to a freezer safe bag or container. Freeze for up to 2 months. I would not recommend freezing the curry with rice.
To reheat: thaw the curry in the refrigerator. While the curry is thawing, feel free to make the coconut brown rice, cauliflower rice or quinoa to serve with it. Reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave for 2 minutes until heated through.
Wow, this looks amazing! Going on my menu next week for sure!
This looks AMAZING! I love anything curry and turmeric! Can’t wait to make this!!!
This looks so good! I’m just starting to experiment with making different types of curries – what brand of curry paste do you use? Can’t wait to try this! I may add cauliflower or broccoli too!
Hi Catherine! Usually it’s this one: http://amzn.to/2lxjjRv
THis was fantastic. All the spices blend together so well. I can’t believe that something so spicy and flavorful is good for you. Will definitely be making it again.
I’ve recently been making a Thai Lemongrass Coconut Curry from the Tone it Up Nutrition Plan. It is quite similar to your recipe but I love all things curry. I have some extra lemongrass stalks on hand (I found mine next to the packaged herbs at Vons) so I’ll need to give your version a try. 🙂
Hi Melanie! That’s crazy coincidental. I’ve never purchased their nutrition plan but I’m glad that you are thinking about making this version! 🙂 Hope you love it!
So yummy!! I just finished making a batch for my weekly meal prep and it is very delicious! I followed the recipe exactly (except I didn’t add peas), then at the end I wanted a thicker sauce so I took about 1 tablespoon of flour, mixed it up on the side with the sauce from the dish, and added it to the whole dish. I also added some left over slow cooker chicken breasts I had in the fridge. Thank you for this recipe!
For thicker sauce use Coconut Cream instead of light milk. If you don’t have that put 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum in 1 t. coconut oil melted, stir well and add to soup once heated. You need the oil to emulsify the xanthan gum or it will clump, works like magic.
I ran into this recipe this morning and HAD to get to the grocery store to get the stuff to make it. I LOVE this! I can’t wait to have this for my lunches this week and actually be excited for lunch!
This looks great. Excited to make it! Will you please clarify these instructions?
“To make the brown rice: Add one cup of brown rice to a pan along with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil. Toast rice over medium heat for 5 minutes until fragrant. Next and 2 1/2 cups of water to a pot; bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for about 45 minutes.”
When should the rice be added to the pot?
Hi Sam, the rice should be toasted in the same pan or pot that you put the water in.
I made the recipe and I loved it!! Just… my husband didn’t !
I used red rice from the Camargue (France) : delicious!!
I loved this! I didn’t have lemongrass and didn’t toast the rice. I added hot sauce and some peanuts on top.
Holy Moly…this is fantastic!
I cut up all my ingredients first, and measured all of the spices, so I was ready to go.
It was so easy. A must try in my book!
This tastes incredible, the flavors are amazing! I used snap peapods instead of the regular peas, and rice noodles in place of the rice. I’ll definitely make this again.
The above was supposed to be a 5 star rating!
Absolutely delicious 😋
This is so fabulous and really easy. A great way to get your veggies in!
Made this delicious recipe with a side of cauliflower fried rice instead of the brown rice, and it was the perfect combo =)
Made this today without lemongrass and added extra turmeric. Used quinoa instead of brown rice. It was excellent. Thank you for the recipe.
So glad you enjoyed this recipe. It’s honestly one of my favorites!
I made this last night for dinner (omitting the lemongrass because I was too lazy to deal) and using red onion because it’s what I had in the pantry. It was so good and my family raved. I used basmati rice because, again, it’s what i have and my daughter prefers it. Will definitely make it again!
Very good thank you!
I saved this recipe months ago and finally made it yesterday. Omg….yum!!!! Only thing…my green curry paste was waaay spicier than expected. That was fine for me but almost too much for Wifey. LOL However, it was so tasty she pushed thru the heat. Well played Monique….well played! 😊😊😊😊
This is now one of my “go-to” recipes for meal prepping – my husband and I LOVE it! Thanks for sharing!
My first Ambitious Kitchen meal – overall very good and went well with a coconut lime rice recipe I use. This will definitely be a regular recipe for me! I used curry powder because I accidentally forgot the paste at the grocery store, but it still worked out. My only thought was the lemongrass tasted a little woody, even though I used only the inner stalk. Any thoughts on improving this?
This was super yummy and I hope it has the same magical healing powers for me! A note for those looking for lemongrass – I couldn’t find any fresh at my grocery store, but found it in the produce section in a tube, like the ones you can buy garlic, ginger, cilantro, etc. I subbed one teaspoon per fresh stalk and that seemed to work fine. I also added about 2 handfuls of fresh spinach and 1 cup of frozen green beans with the peas and cooked just long enough to let the spinach wilt a little bit. Yum!
Awesome. Thanks for the tip, Erika!
This is delicious! My friend cooked it for a supper party last night and I can’t stop thinking about it – I’d have it again for breakfast it was so good! Friend added prawns – awesome addition. Must go – off to the shops to get the ingredients 😉 Thank you for sharing such a brilliant recipe. I’ve signed up to your email list. Can’t wait to try other recipes!
I’m so glad you guys enjoyed this one! It is one of my absolute favorites 🙂
Just made this last night and wow! New favorite! We subbed the chickpea for chicken, because my husband isn’t a fan of chickpeas. He said this could easily be something you ordered in a nice Thai restaurant. Can’t wait to make this again!
Amazing! Yes it’s perfect for swapping in chicken – so glad you both enjoyed.
This recipe is AMAZING!! I’ve been vegan for about 5 weeks and this is BY FAR the tastiest meal I’ve eaten to date. I packed it in my lunch today and could barely wait to eat it!! I might just make this recipe weekly!
I’m so glad you enjoyed this one! It’s definitely one of my favorites (all year long). Enjoy!
Forgot to rate the recipe in my previous comment…obviously 5 stars! Would give it 10 if I could!
Tried this recipe a couple of days ago and we know this will be a family favourite for vegetarian nights. My supermarket was out of lemongrass but the green curry paste alone carried the dish just fine we thought.
Amazing! This is one of my favorite vegetarian meals 🙂 and if you can’t find lemongrass that’s totally fine!
Next time I’m making a double, possibly triple batch. I LOVE IT. This recipe calls for everything I love- chopping, fresh, flavorful, like every ingredient screams everything that makes me happy! YAYE! oh, I forgot about the rice tho…next time! Thanks for yet another amazing recipe!
I’m so happy to hear that, Denise! Tons of fresh flavors in here 🙂 Enjoy!
I happen to have red curry paste, I’m assuming that would work fine?
The flavor will just be a bit different, but it should work fine!
Some of my favorite flavors! I used tempeh instead of chickpeas and added some broccoli I had lying around. Yum!! Very good, and easy once all the veggies are cut up 🙂
This was delicious! I couldn’t believe how quickly it came together and how flavorful it was. Easily could have ordered it from a restaurant. Thanks Monique for always making it look so easy.
YES this one makes me feel like I’m ordering takeout (but better!) So glad you loved it!
Second time making this. So nice! Thanks.
Monique, this is delicious! Love your flavorful recipes! My Thai Ktichen green curry paste was not spicy, and I did not use lemongrass. I used the listed veggies, but a lot of different veggies would be good in this. This is a keeper!
So glad you loved it Connie! Yes – this one is perfect for customizing with different veggies too 🙂
Is green curry paste spicy/hot?
Not in my opinion!
Really delicious and very simple and quick dish to make. Thank you for sharing!
This was SO delicious. Thank you for the awesome recipe!
I’m so glad you liked it! This is my go-to soup in the winter 🙂
I am looking forward to trying this out. Not waiting until I get a cold though!
It’s delicious either way 🙂 Enjoy!
All the flavors in this, yum!!
I love its colors making it look so yummy!!
I cannot print out your recipes. Does anyone else have the same problem?
Hi Joyce! When you click the pink “print” button underneath the nutrition information it should pull up a new tab that you can print. Let me know if you have any trouble with that!
I’m on such a curry kick I need to make this!!! Looks so bright and cozy 🤗
You came to the right place! Curry is my fav. Hope you love this one!
Made this last week. Subbed broccoli for red peppers and instead of chopping the lemongrass, I simmered the whole stalk in the sauce and removed before serving. Ate it over quinoa. Amazing for both dinner and leftovers for lunch the next day!
Perfect – this is delicious with quinoa!
Whoa! This recipe is delicious! Had it for dinner and finished the rest today! I’ve never cooked with lemongrass and for sure it a nice flavor component of this dish.
Amazing! So glad you liked it. And yes, lemongrass is amazing to cook with 🙂
The video shows onion but the recipe doesn’t…onion or no? Thanks!!
I typically use green onion here but feel free to use white or yellow if you’d like!
Thank you for the recipe! I just made it again tonight and I love it so much!
Absolutely! Glad you love it.
So in love with this one!
Made it this week,absolutely loved it and the entire house smelt like the best Thai Restaurant!Thank you for sharing with us
So good!! Happy to hear that Elena 🙂
Love this recipe! I made it for the second time this week. The directions were spot on, and the food kept me very full. I also love the technique of cooking the brown rice. It always comes out perfect.
Amazing! So happy to hear that, Kiran.
I made this and it was delicious! I roasted some broccoli and butternut squash first (just to get some other textures) and added it in the end. The flavor was so good, I will keep this recipe on hand for sure-thank you.
Sounds perfect! Glad you enjoyed 🙂
This tasted absolutely amazing, rich and flavorful. I added a bunch of chopped collard greens and seitan and edamame for protein (instead of chickpeas and peas). There wasn’t enough liquid to cover everything though, so I’d probably double the curry part next time.
Perfect! That sounds delicious. And yes with those additions feel free to add some more of the curry liquid 🙂
This was sooo good and easy! Made it for meal prep this week. I didn’t have lemongrass, but added some red onion and spinach for extra veggies and it was perfect. Will make avain!
So happy you liked it! Still delicious even without the lemongrass 🙂
WAYYYYYY too spicy. My family and I couldn’t take one bite. I will make it again with 1/2 teaspoon green curry paste.
Hi Shelley! That seems odd, usually green curry paste is not spicy at all! I would double check what kind you’re using.
Fantastic tasting recipe! I used lemongrass from Whole Foods (That’s Tasty brand). It was recommended to remove the outer stalk and crush the inner stalk and drop in pan while cooking and removing later so that’s what I did. I followed the recipe closely and also added a few handfuls of fresh green beans. Shortly before serving is the best time to add the frozen peas. It was excellent as a vegetarian dish but I would like to add some cooked chicken or shrimp to the leftovers. I bet either will be excellent.
Perfect! And yes, this would be delicious with some chicken or shrimp, too. Yum!
WHAT was that flavor explosion in my mouth!!!!! Holy moly. I am JUST opening up to Indian and curry flavors. And as a 5 year vegan I am shocked at what I’ve been missing out on! Anyway, this was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good. Kids loved it too. I couldn’t stop eating it. I actually reused a stalk of lemongrass I used for a soup last week and man it still brought the flavor! I skipped the peppers and peas. Only critique is the carrots – they took forever to cook. I had to keep adding water as it was drying out and eventually just cranked the heat up to get them to cook, and they were chopped small! I guess they need to be even smaller next time
I’m so happy you found this recipe! Such a great plant-based dinner. Hmm the carrots should cook well in that amount of time, but I’d suggest making sure they’re a bit thinner/smaller next time!
This looks like a delicious curry. My daughter is vegan and does not like cooked red pepper. Any ideas for a good substitute for the red pepper.
Yes, I think more carrots, green beans, or broccoli would be fabulous!
Thank you for your ideas. I will definitely try it and let you know how it goes.
I used yellow pepper instead of red, for a bit more mellow flavor. Maybe try that. Good luck
This recipe was SO good! Eating it as we speak. I followed directions exactly, I just added cauliflower and used canned peas instead of frozen – tastes amazing! I think next time I’ll add more liquid.
One of my favorite dinners! Glad you loved it!
I will be making this with chicken. Glad I saw your comment towards the end about the non veg option. Am assuming it would be okay to add chicken thigh instead of breast as it has more iron and best for babies.
I guess you would be thinking about what to feed your baby too. He looks beautiful and so does your wedding. Gorgeous decorations, dress and wedding cake. Oh and the flowers on your head. Stunning <3
Absolutely! Great idea. And thank you so much 🙂
Totally delicious. I did buy a lemongrass paste to use instead, and this recipe turned out delicious! I didn’t quite have a cup of frozen peas, so I substituted frozen riced cauliflower. I will definitely use this recipe again all winter long! Thanks so much.
Perfect! I’m glad those swaps worked out well. Such a great, cozy dinner or lunch!
It was absolutely delicious but me being a novice chef means it turned out taking 2h 30mins. It was a huge amount of time but definitely worth it and was very fun to make 🙂 (I made it with coconut cream instead of milk and replaced the veggie stock with beef stock because I didn’t have any.)
is there anything I can use instead of the green chili paste?
maybe curry powder?
You can use yellow curry paste or red curry paste!
Made this tonight for the first time. My wife and I both loved it and ate until we were stuffed! Lol. I did tweak it just a bit by adding a half a lime more of juice and a little more curry (love curry). My only question was the lemongrass. I was trying to find a soft part of it but the stalk was very crunchy. i kept peeling away (wasted a lot) to get to the middle, trying to find a soft inner piece.
Is that what the recipe wanted?
So glad you both enjoyed! And yes – just remove the outer stems!
Husband was feeling sick, so I made this this week. It’s really delicious! And super easy and quick to make. I really like a little zing with my curry, so I think the next time I may add more lime before I serve it.
So glad you found this one! The coziest dinner 🙂
This was so tasty and easy to make. We used homemade stock and we didn’t have chickpeas so we substituted lentils. Delish!
Perfect! Glad you enjoyed!
Such an easy and super tasty recipe! I love how easy it was to tweak for what I had in my fridge. Added spinach at the end for extra color and nutrition. Yummmm
Perfect! Such a great dinner!
This recipe was wonderful, great for meal prepping too. It was spicy and had a lot of bright notes all at the same time. The ginger and lemongrass made the recipe for me. Over the brown rice this was a hearty comforting bowl of food!
This is so good! I love the flavors and also love that it feels comforting but is actually healthy! I used your tip of adding another can of chickpeas for extra protein, so it’s nice and filling, and I threw in some broccoli because I bought too much. Thank you!!
Absolutely! This one’s great for customizing. Glad you enjoyed!
Love this recipe! I cook a cup of lentils and add them in at the end for protein. This time I threw in a handful of spinach at the end for a little extra greens.
Perfect! Great idea 🙂
In my experience eating Thai food at places all over the US, red (Panang) and yellow (Massaman) curries are the mildest, and green is usually spiciest because of the inclusion of jalapeños or other green chile peppers. Perhaps the curry paste you’re buying is milder than usual. There’s something so delicious about jalapeño and coconut milk though!
You’re right about not freezing the rice and just making some fresh. Freezing rice tends to break up the grains.
Also, a little lemon juice and lime zest together can sub for lemongrass if there’s no Whole Foods or an Asian market nearby. Ive never cut it up small and left it in a recipe; I usually cut a stalk into pieces about 3 inches long, cook it in the recipe, and remove the pieces at the end. CHEERS
The green curry paste I use is very mild! Noted on those observations 🙂 And great tip with the lemongrass swap!
This was so easy and delicious. I had never toasted brown rice in coconut oil before and it added such a beautiful touch. I am always hesitant with vegetarian dishes (though I try to incorporate them for sustainability and health) but this was totally filling and so flavourful. Highly recommend!
Absolutely! Perfect lunch or dinner 🙂
My whole family LOVEDDDD this curry!! The flavors are amazing. We changed the recipe up a little bit though, because we aren’t the biggest fans of chickpeas.
We added a cup of green lentils instead of the chickpeas and also added about a cup of small cauliflower florets with the first round of ingredients. I was prepared to add a bit more liquid, but I didn’t need to.
I couldn’t get lemongrass, so I added some lemon juice along with the other liquids and then added about two tablespoons of chopped lemon balm (stems and leaves) towards the end of the cooking process,
We also used white rice instead of brown rice because that was what we had.
The curry paste we used was a bit spicy and was perfect for me and my husband, but a bit too much for my 1 year old. I added some yogurt to his portion and he devoured it! So definitely a great addition, if you need to reduce the heat or if you just love yogurt!
Perfect! This one’s great for customizing with what you have on-hand. So glad it was a hit!
I made this recipe several weeks ago and it was outstanding. I loved how the flavors came together and I think it was even better the second night. On the second night I had a left over salmon fillet which I flaked into the soup and it sent it over the top.
Amazing! So happy to hear that 🙂
This one turned out to be too hot for my taste….need to reduce the thai curry, or replace with mild curry, It highjacked completely the taste of this dish….
Sorry to hear that! The curry I have linked is very mild, so I’d suggest picking up a mild one next time.
Great flavor. Easy to make. Entire family enjoyed it. Will make again. Added two cans of chick peas and an entire bag of peas. Ate over cauliflower rice.
Love it! Perfect dinner 🙂
Very easy vegan meal! Also does not cost much at all to buy these ingredients at grocery store. I’ve made this multiple times and I always overdo it with the cilantro and scallions – huge fan of herbs. 🙂
Absolutely! Glad it’s a favorite 🙂
Amazing! Loved it and can’t wait to eat leftovers for lunch.
So happy to hear that!
Super flavoursome and hearty – love the protein power in this recipe. Next time I’d definitely add some cubed sweet potato and broccoli florets. Really easy, straightforward recipe which is wholesome and so darn yummy! Highly recommend giving this one a go.
Sounds delicious! Glad you enjoyed 🙂
This is so delicious! I couldn’t find lemongrass at the grocery store but they did have lemongrass paste and it worked really well! I took the skin off the chickpeas and mashed them a tad for my toddler and he loved every bite.
Perfect! So glad it was a hit 🙂
This recipe is one of my favourites and a definite go-to for busy nights when I don’t have a lot of time to cook. I’m not one to leave comments but this recipe is worth it. Canadian friends you can purchase a nice green curry paste at Oceans.
Thanks so much for the review, Jess! I’m SO happy to hear that you loved this one 🙂
This was delicious and easy. I made this with chicken instead of chickpeas and I couldn’t find green curry so I used red and shaved off carbs by using cauli rice. I love your recipes!
I’m so thrilled to hear you loved it 🙂 Such a good idea to use cauli rice, and I bet red curry was delicious!
I started with a small cold today and this dish hit the spot! So refreshing and tasty! I am a huge fan of lemongrass and have a great grocery store (Jungle Jim’s) to purchase beautiful Thai dish necessities. I will definitely make this again!
So glad you loved this one, Linda! Hope you’re feeling better today 🙂
This recipe is incredible. I love the name of it. I started making it during COVID 19, and I can’t stop. I use any and every vegetables I have on hand-from green beans to zucchini to snap peas. My favorite is adding cauliflower. I prefer red curry, so I change that out too. Even though this has chickpeas for protein, I sometimes add tofu that I have sautéed in a little coconut oil and salt. Bottom line-this recipe is amazing as is. It’s fun to alter and play with adding any veggie under the sun. It does feel very “healing” to make and digest. I do frequently cheat and use the lemon grass paste only because I find it the most tedious part of the recipe.
I’m SO happy you’re loving it, Sarah! Those are all amazing substitutions. And totally fine to use the lemongrass paste–total time-saver!
This curry dish is absolutely incredible and something we will make for our family probably close to every week! I think it would also be great with tofu and I am excited to try it next time.
This was SO delicious! I made both the brown rice and soup with homemade bone broth for extra nutrients as well. Thank you for this!
Yay!! Glad that you enjoyed it. Thanks for the review ❤️
Really enjoyed this, made it tonight for dinner and lunches for the rest of the week! I didn’t have lemongrass or capsicum but it was still absolutely amazing. Really good start off for my new anti inflammatory healthy diet!
So glad to hear you loved it, Jordana 🙂
So easy, so good! I’ve never made curry before and everything was at my local store, including lemongrass. Added broccoli for extra color! COVID is officially in our house and I was excited to make this and the chicken soup—left a review there, too!
Nice, happy you enjoyed it! Ooh love the addition of broccoli, too. Feel better!!
This was excellent – richly flavoured and satisfying. I like a slightly thicker sauce so added some almond butter. My only other advice is to allow more prep time. The mincing and chopping (which I do by hand) took me closer to 30 min.
I added a fish sauce and garlic chili paste – this recipe was easy to follow and turned out delicious!
Oooh that sounds amazing!!
This was delicious!!! I didn’t have enough carrots so added parsnips which have a bit more spice. I used red pepper flakes to spice it up. Since my nose started running, the spice combo was perfect for me. I will make this again and add more veggies!
I have made this recipe several times and it is awesome! It took me much longer than 15 minutes to gather and prep all the ingredients. Once cooking starts, it goes fast, so I recommend having your ingredients in order and ready before starting.
Good to know, thanks for the feedback! Glad it’s worth the effort 🙂
This turned out great!! Perfect for a meatless meal =)
A lot thinner than the pic. Just ok. Coconut cream would’ve thickened this up like the pic, but much more calories
Hmm simmering the dish should help it to thicken up, but feel free to cut down on the broth just a bit if you’d like.
Doubled the recipe first time trying it because I knew it would be delicious and it is! The dish is full of beautiful colors and textures and tastes, and fun to improvise depending on what’s available. I have lemongrass in my garden, and it’s easy to grow. Lots of pluses for this dish – No dairy, no gluten, and wonderfully fragrant. Easy prep. Enjoy!
Lovely Thai curry, nice and simple instructions, love the video playing next to the ingredients. I added a bit of fish sauce like you advised, it was great tasting and we all loved it👍👏👏👏
