Veggie Red Thai Curry

Wow! It's been such a long time since I posted. Life happened and now I'm making my life happen again, including writing and updating this blog a bit better. So last night I made a vegetarian red Thai curry and it was excellent. It was so simple, I could hardly call it cooking.

All you need are a bunch of your favorite vegetables and Trader Joe's Thai Red Curry Sauce.
Makes 2-4 servings depending on how many veggies you use
Cooking Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients
-A few heads of broccoli (cut into spears)
-2 large carrots sliced at an angle
-1 red bell pepper

At other times, I've also included tofu, mushrooms, and onions.

Preparation
Heat pan to medium, using neutral oil like Canola. If using onions, start with those, you can't overcook them. Then add the vegetables that take the longest to cook, like carrots. Saute for 5-7 minutes or so, and then add broccoli until it becomes bright green. Then add peppers, mushrooms, tofu and other vegetables that take no time to cook. Do not cook vegetables through because they need to simmer in the sauce and finish cooking then.

Add Red Curry sauce and lower heat to a simmer for 15 minutes. Serve with your favorite rice.

How simple is that?!
