GOLDEN THAI CURRY WITH FRESH BEANS


Adapted from Eats Well With Others who adapted it from Vegetarian Times March 2012. I almost left out the peanut butter - I loathe peanut butter, but I tasted the dish and something was missing. So... reluctantly I added the peanut butter and voila, it was not only complete but I couldn't even taste the peanut butter yey! I thought the vegetables would require far less cooking time than suggested; had I followed the instructions I would have ended up with mushy vegetables. This was perfect and delicious and I will make it again.

2 cups cubed sweet potato
1 cup cubed carrots,
1 cup chopped fresh wax or green beans
2 Tbsp coconut oil
1 cup chopped onions
3 minced garlic cloves
1 cup coconut milk
3 Tbsp Thai curry sauce
1 large Tbsp peanut butter
1 cup diced red bell pepper
2 sprigs flat leaf parsley, chopped


• Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
• Meanwhile chop the vegetables. Cut the sweet potato twice as big as the carrots.
• Add the chopped sweet potatoes, carrots and beans to the pot and cook for 2 minutes.
• Meanwhile, slowly cook the onions and garlic in oil.
• Transfer the blanched vegetables to the onions. Do not discard the vegetable stock.
• Add the coconut milk, the curry sauce, 1/3 cup of vegetable stock and the peanut butter and bring to the boil.
• Reduce to slow simmer and cook for two minutes.
• Adjust the salt. If you need pepper, add a light sprinkling of white pepper.
• Add the chopped bell peppers and the parsley and remove from heat.
• Let it rest for 2 minutes and serve.

  1. Zsuzsa, first of all I must say that apart from being moved by Guernica we have something really rare in common: the hatred of peanut butter! I also hate it, but since I cooked an Indonesian dish once where the sauce required peanut butter, I keep a jar in the fridge. Just like you I discovered that peanut butter is fantastic in savoury dishes (if they are spicy especially).
    The curry looks lovely and very sunny.

  2. Thank you Sissi, it is the testament of the dish, [the sunnyness] because the light was dreadful when I took that photo. It is amazing how peanut butter transforms some dishes, but to tell you the truth, if I can taste it [the peanut butter] I am unable to eat it. I like peanut butter even less than I like fish ha. Ah the Guernica, I always thought that Picasso's cubist experiments all made sense to me once I saw that painting.
