This Red Thai Curry recipe uses simple ingredients and packs in a lot of flavour. Think curry, coconut, lime, ginger, garlic, a bit salty, a bit sweet and a nice warm heat from the curry paste & sambal oelek. For Garnish? Bean sprouts, roasted peanuts, lime & cilantro. I like to have a little dish of soy sauce & sesame oil at the table for drizzling too. I can also see some julienned carrots and thai or regular basil as a garnish on this too!
I had been keeping my eye out for fresh lemongrass for ages because I wanted to use it in this recipe. Finally, I just decided to give this paste a try. You see them in tubes in the herb section at grocery stores. I'm just getting acquainted with it, I think I like it fine but will play around more with it. Leave it out if you wish. You can taste at the end and decide to add a bit more lime juice instead.
Easy Noodle Bowl Variation
I also use this exact same recipe to make a thicker sauce/stir-fry like noodle dish. I just add 1 cup LESS veg stock in the beginning, I don't add in any vegetables. (Last picture at the bottom of this post)
Instead, I sauté veggies (eg: broccoli, bok choy, carrots, mushrooms peppers, tofu) and toss with cooked noodles and some of the sauce. Top with same garnishes as the soup.
