    Thank you for this recipe! My husband and I love green curry so I was excited to make this recipe for us and our two year old. Tick of approval from husband and child.

    What’s better than a child eating dinner? When you only have to make one dinner!

    I love this recipe. It is so easy to make and the paste goes a long way, storing well in the freezer. My fiancé and 14mo love it too. So tasty.
    Thank you for your great recipes. I enjoy trying them out.
