Mrs P’s Guilt-free Thai Green Curry

So the weather has finally turned on us, the balmy summer days and hot sticky evenings seem a distant memory! It’s been “UK style” monsoon conditions for the last couple of days now. My usual forty minute journey to and from work took one and a half hours to get back yesterday evening, needless to say my summer sandals are now bin bound and my paper bag of shopping a sodden mess. Drenched and hungry I got to work straight away making my own, very comforting version of a Thai green curry. This is a dish we have regularly, its full of so many flavours and always makes us reminisce on our love of Asia. I love Asian cooking, the fusion of fresh herbs, spices, chillies, ginger, garlic and citrus fruits, to me there’s simply nothing better. The dish is always accompanied by a big batch of cauliflower rice. For any of you feeling a little under the weather at the moment, this is the perfect health pick-me up laden with an abundance of antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients. Nothing to feel guilty about on this plate.
