Although I love eating out, making food at home is healthier, because I am the one who makes it. Even though many people prefer to going out over cooking, there are simple recipes you can make in one pan in no time. For instance, Thai Red Curry Vegetables, are easy to make.
First, it is important choose a vegan curry paste. An example of both and red and green curry paste I love is Thai Kitchen Curry Paste. The vegetables are simply added to a pan with the sauce and simmered until done. Although you can eat the vegetables alone, you can also serve on top of rice, rice noodles.
Another option is to use low-fat coconut milk. Both types of coconut milk creates a light, creamy, yet subtle spicy sauce. If you prefer less spice, adjust the amount of curry paste you add to the pan. You can always add more, but you can't take spice away, so tread lightly if you are sensitive to spice.
