Green Curry and Veggies

Yes, yes, I know!  I another curry dish.  I’ll stop posting them when they stop being so delicious.  The best thing about curry is the variety of vegetables you can incorporate. Almost as good as that is the fact you can buy a handful of seasonings and they last through so many meals.

I tried a variation on a recipe from Cookie + Kate.  The asparagus was very intriguing to me, and I was looking for ways to use green curry paste since I’ve always used red in the past.  Their recipe calls for spinach, but I didn’t use it, and I feel like it turned out just fine.  It’s a much brighter dish after a series of heavy, potato meals.  And look, no noodles!
