VEGETARIAN: Thai Green Curry

Up until about two years ago, I was so afraid to make Thai green curry mainly because I did not want to “ruin” it but after spending so much money on ordering it from restaurants, I decided it is time! And I am proud to say that after making this recipe I have never ordered Thai Green Curry at restaurants. Ever again!

Thai green curry is so versatile and pretty much any vegetables can be incorporated to make this dish even healthier than it already is.
