Description

Our 25 Best Thai Recipes! Inspired by the flavors of Thailand, these simple, easy Thai dishes are fast, easy and vegan adaptable! ( Thai Zucchini Curry)


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 pound chicken breast, thinly sliced (or make crispy tofu, or see list of protein options above)
  • 1 pound of zucchini or summer squash, sliced
  • 1 cup onion, sliced
  • 1 cup bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 23 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 13.5 oz, 1 can of coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup water or chicken stock, more as needed
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, more to taste
  • 1 1/22 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 3 kaffir lime leaves, thinly sliced (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 1 cup fresh Thai basil

Instructions

  1. Add the curry paste and half the coconut milk to medium-high heat in a medium-large stock pot. Break up the curry paste, stir well with the coconut milk, and cook until bubbles form and the sauce thickens. (Around 2 minutes.)
  2. Add the chicken, chicken stock and the rest of the coconut milk, and cook for 5-6 minutes or until the chicken is cooked. Stir a few times. The sauce will reduce quite a bit at this point. Feel free to add 2-3 tablespoons more water or stock if it gets too thick.
  3. Add the vegetables, onion, bell peppers, tomatoes, and zucchini, and loosen with more water if needed.   Turn the heat to medium and cook for 4-5 minutes until the veggie’s desired doneness.   
  4. Add fish sauce, sugar, and kaffir lime leaves, stir, and cook for 2 more minutes. Carefully sample the curry sauce and season as needed with more fish sauce and sugar. Add more curry paste for extra spice or flavor. Adjust until happy.
  5. Turn the heat off, add basil, stir well, and let cool for a few minutes before serving.
  6. Best served with jasmine, brown, or basmati rice. Leftovers will keep up to 4 days in the fridge.

Notes

  • If making with crispy tofu– add it in at the end just to gently warm through.
  • If using homemade curry paste, the sauce will not be as bright as the store-bought paste. It has more of a creamy yellow color rather than the red color. A few red peppers are used for the red color, but they will still taste great!
  • If leaving out the tomatoes, add a squeeze of lime juice.
  • Potatoes are great for this recipe, especially the softer and smaller potatoes like gold, yellow or red varieties.
  • Sweet potatoes are also great, but be sure to add 4-5 minutes of cooking time if using the more firm potatoes.
  • Pumpkins and squash are amazing for this recipe! Use kabocha, acorn, butternut squash, and spaghetti squash. Add a few extra minutes of cooking if using a more firm pumpkin or squash.  Use a fork to test and ensure a fork can easily poke through the flesh.

  1. Hey! Yesterday, I went to a Thai restaurant in Randwick, and the food was delicious. I  I wanted to make it myself now. Then I came across your blog and attempted preparing green papaya salad, which came out be  so good.

  2. I think we have cooked our way through every single one of these. All very good.

  3. This recipe reminded me of a dish from a local restaurant my husband and I order often. We always get tofu as you suggested here, so I added fried cubes of tofu. It was very close to the one we order, fresh tasting, and quite delicious!! The sauce is complex and truly addictive. I also love the look, the information, and the healthy recipes on your site. I appreciate the numerous recipes that give meatless/vegan options. This is the way my family aspires to eat, so thanks for your support!!!!

    1. I’m so Glad you liked the Thai Noodle Salad- and thanks so much for the great feedback. Very appreciated.

    1. We sure do! Think Kouy Teow (Thai Beef Noodle Soup) and all the soup dishes in our Thai cuisine. (;
