Red Thai curry with zucchini! Fast, packed with coconut milk, red curry paste and cilantro. Perfect! - Cooking

Red Thai curry with zucchini,

This means heavenly thick, bubbling sauce, which is incredibly aromatic with red curry paste, ginger, garlic and onion. In addition, coconut milk, which makes the whole wonderfully creamy. Zucchini provide us with proper vegetable power and on top we sprinkle a little more coriander. Because, um, coriander and curry is just LOVE !?

Bonus: For the whole recipe we only need 8 ingredients and 20 minutes Time.

Ohhh yes fall, so we're so ready for you!

Hand on the heart? Cooking and shopping I'm currently not really the flow. I already have you with the Mango Coconut Overnight Oats tells me that at the moment I spend a lot of time in the university besides the work for the blog and orders for clients with evaluations for my master thesis.

This also means: I am quite often not home for a long time. And somehow I just can not get it to go shopping reasonably planned.

So I come home in the evening and have two options. Number 1 would be to jet again to the supermarket around the corner and quickly get some ingredients. Number 2 (honestly the much more common variant): I just throw something out of the ingredients that we have right there.

Sometimes that ends in Banana Peanut Butter Sundae with raspberries (but hey, the frozen bananas had to go anyway) and I am glad that there is something sweet for dinner.

And sometimes, yes sometimes, the very best dishes are created in just such situations. You can imagine what I'm talking about, right?

Ohhh yes friends! This bombastic delicious, simple and all around loud red Thai curry with zucchini is the result of “Okeee, we still have two zucchini, nn bits of coconut milk and, oh yes, there behind the noodle packs I also see red curry paste”. Sometimes improvisation is best!

Ready for the secret ingredients for the perfect Thai curry?
