I am a HUGE fan of curries. Yellow, red, green, any color and I'm about it! I wanted to create a curry that would leave me feeling light and satisfied. The one hits the spot! Ditch the store bought curry paste and make this one in under 5 minutes. You can make this entire dish in the time it takes your rice to cook.. which is a freakin’ miracle come Monday night. I guarantee you've never tasted a “curry” this fresh and bright. Tangy Avocado Curry, in 35 minutes, for under $12. Boom.

Serves 3

The Green Curry Paste

The Goods:

  • 3 green onions

  • 1 bunch parsley

  • 1 stalk lemongrass

  • 1 inch long fat chunk o’ ginger

  • 1-2 jalapeños (depending on how hot you want it)

  • 3 cloves garlic

  • 1/2 bunch cilantro

  • 1 tbsp. turmeric

  • 2 tsp corainder

  • 2 tsp cumin

  • 1 lime, juiced and zested

  • 1 lemon, juiced

The Method:

Add all ingredients to the food processor or high powdered blender and process until you've got a smooth consistency. It'll be a lil stringy from the ginger and thats ok! Dump ingredients into a bowl and set aside. You can make this a few days ahead of time if you want!
