Coconut Curry #321 - Vegan MoFo 2013
I know what you may be thinking, "really?! *another* coconut curry dish?" It is true, this is one of my favorite go-to dishes. I decided to lay off on posting this sort of dish unless I had something new to share. Well, I do have some new things to share about the coconut curry dish I made a couple weeks ago.
Most of the dish is fairly typical: mock duck, rice noodles, some green beans and Thai peppers. The sauce even seems typical - coconut milk with yellow curry powder. However, I really wanted to punch up the sauce so I took some time with it. I crumbled in a veggie bouillon cube and at least .13-.25 cup of fresh sliced jalapeños into it and let it simmer for a while to really get that flavor from the peppers. I also added a bit more coriander powder and some lime juice. Simple steps to vastly improve one of my favorite simple dishes of all time. Of course, I don't always have all of those ingredients, but when I do, I will certainly be adding them again.
