Potatoes, Peas and Green Beans in Coconut Red Curry Sauce

Jason created this dish to accompany my stir fried vegetables with lemongrass. I love the amazing variety of flavor profiles there are in thai cooking. We managed to use up the rest of the coconut milk from Sunday's peanut sauce for the spring rolls, and we have leftovers for several more meals. Both of these dishes were incredibly simple but lovely and complex in flavor.

2 yukon gold potates, peeled and cut into large cubes
1/2 - 3/4 pound green beans
1/2 cup frozen peas
1/4 very large onion, sliced
1/2 cup coconut milk
2 Tablespoons red curry paste

  • Cover the potatoes with water and boil until fork tender. Drain.
  • In a large pan, saute the onion in a little oil until softened
  • Add the curry paste and cook for another 2-3 minutes
  • Add the beans
  • Add the coconut milk and peas and simmer on low about 5 minutes
  • Add the potatoes and heat through
