I’ve been meaning to write down my red curry recipe for awhile. I’ve always made curry using a combination of two different recipes. One quick and easy, and the other more traditional. Here’s my vegan version using Gardein Chick’ns, but pan fried tofu or chicken flavor seitan would work really well here too. I served it over quinoa because I didn’t want to wait for brown rice to cook, and I added a little bit of canned bean sprouts too.
Red Curry Chick’n
1 package of Gardein Chick’n scallopini cutlets
1 bag of frozen vegetables, in this case i used a bell pepper mix
1 13.5 can light coconut milk
1/2 c. chopped onions
1 tbsp. red curry paste
1 tbsp. lime juice
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
dried basil, optional
chopped dry peanuts, optional
1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add Gardein and saute for a few minutes on each side, and remove from pan. Cut into strips or bite sized pieces and set aside.
2. If necessary add more olive oil to pan, and saute onions for about 2 minutes. Add frozen vegetables and cook an additional 2 minutes. Add curry paste, coconut milk, lime juice, brown sugar, and salt, and reserved chick’n. Bring to a boil and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes, sauce should thicken. Garnish with a little dried basil or chopped peanuts.
