Thai Tom Yum Mixed Vegetable Curry

Today I made a mixed vegetable Thai Tom Yum curry. I went in search for Thai curry paste, either green or red, and couldn't find any anywhere. i could only find the pre made sauce, bottled, which is only good for one use. Not worth it. So I got a jar of tom yum soup paste, and used it to make a curry.


3 tsp tom yum paste
1 can lite coconut milk
1/2 cup water
3-4 tsp thai peanut sauce
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp chillie oil
a pinch of grated fresh ginger
1/2 cup spinach
8 snow peas
8-10 green beans, cut into thirds
1/3 bell pepper, any color
6 basil leaves
1/2 chinese eggplant, diced

Serves only 2, so double if needed.

In a saucepan, add tom yum paste , peanut sauce, soy sauce and chillie oil to coconut milk and combine with a whisk. Add water and heat. Add ginger and vegetables, bring to a boil, and simmer till sauce is desired thickness and veggies are done to your liking. Add soy sauce at the end to taste (instead of salt).

Serve over jasmine rice

SO EASY! And tasty.

I'm pretty sure it would be nice with any veggies you like (except maybe carrots and celery, they don't go well with Asian food). Add or subtract as desired.
