Why Thai Green Green Curry? Cause today we’re loading up on healthy greens, Son! We’re going vegetarian today – vegan even! Clearly, I’m still being influenced by my friends at Thug Kitchen!
Lies! This isn’t vegan after all. It wouldn’t be that hard to make it vegan though… axe the fish sauce and replace the ghee with coconut oil. Done. Take that! Another Pegan (paleo vegan) recipe.
OK, take a couple minutes to be entertained by this ad. No, I’m serious: make the time to watch this (but make sure the kids aren’t in earshot):
Thug Kitchen has this great cookbook Eat Like You Give a F*ck. I still need to paleo-ize some of their recipes.
But for now, I want to share some great Thai Green Green Curry. If you’ve read much on this site, you’d know that I love Thai food and that Thailand has a special place in my heart.
This may be too spicy for some. Just cut out the chili peppers if that’s the case.

Cut out the chili flakes? I may have to unfriend that person. I like this recipe with the meat option added in, but Thai anything goes a long way for me. I’ll take extra chili flakes on mine, please.
I hear you brotha, but there are those people out there.
They just need to train their sleeping taste buds. I might need to put a program together to help people expand their “tolerance for flavor” through an intense regimen of gradual but steady spice increase. I’m sure together we can cure the “black pepper is too spicy” epidemic.
