Ingredients

Adjust Servings:
2 heads broccoli chopped into little trees
450g (1lb) minced (ground) chicken
3-4 tablespoons green curry paste
2-3 tablespoons fish sauce
1 bunch basil leaves picked & torn if large

Variations

different veg/ more veg – any stir fry veg will work here. Try bok choy, chinese broccoli, any chinese greens really, broccolini, cauliflower, red capsicum (bell peppers), zucchini (courgettes), carrots, snow peas (mange tout), green beans or a combo of any of the above.

vegetarian / vegan – replace the chicken with 2-3 large handfuls of cashew nuts or tofu. And season with soy sauce or salt instead of the fish sauce. And make sure your green curry paste is vegetarian. Most brands are but good to check.

can’t find green curry paste? – most other curry pastes will be good but you’ll need to adjust the quantity depending on the variety. OR just go for a simpler stir fry and use soy, oyster or hoisin sauce instead of the curry paste.

no fish sauce? – season with salt OR use soy sauce instead.

different meat – replace chicken with minced (ground) beef, pork or turkey. You could also use sliced meat instead of the mince if you prefer.

more substantial – serve with roast cashew nuts.

carb lovers – serve with steamed rice on the side.

family friendly – use less curry paste or make without and serve up for the kids then add curry paste and fish sauce at the end for the adults.

The idea for using Thai green curry paste as a sauce to season a stir fry came from my favourite food writer, Nigel Slater. To be honest I wasn’t sure it would be very good but as usual when I trust St. Nigel everything turns out much more delicious that expected.
