This one-pot Thai curry is big on flavour but low on effort, made in only 3 steps. It's a great way to use up any leftover veggies, just throw in whatever you have hanging around for an easy weeknight dinner.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 400 millilitres of water
  • 2 vegetable stock cubes
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut or vegetable oil
  • 400 millilitres coconut milk
  • Mix of vegetables, sliced (head of broccoli including stem, handful of baby corn, 2 red peppers) – use what you have available to a similar quantity
  • 300 grams edamame beans (substitute with green beans, runner beans or frozen peas)
  • 120 grams Thai green curry paste
  • 1 large handful of chopped coriander
  • 1 thumb sized piece of ginger finely sliced into matchsticks
  • 2 cloves of garlic chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime

Method

  1. Pour 400 millilitres of boiling water into a measuring jug with the stock cube and the finely chopped nori sheet, and put to one side.
  2. Heat up a pan over a medium heat with the cooking oil and add the curry paste and ginger for a few seconds to let the aromas release, then add the garlic and sliced veg and sauté for a minute.
  3. Add the vegetable stock, coconut milk, chopped coriander, half the lime juice and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Then add the edamame beans to the curry and heat for a couple of minutes until cooked.

To serve

Serve the curry with rice topped a few coriander leaves and a squeeze of lime. Chopped nuts are also great to add a crunch.
