This recipe, again, came from what I happened to have in the fridge and pantry. The tomatoes needed to be used up (they were starting to wrinkle), and the fingerling potato bag was beckoning to me. I love fingerling potatoes.
So I had a tin of Thai Green Curry paste and thought it would go very nicely with the potatoes, and it all ended up in the crock pot.
Five hours later:
The other advantage of this one is the leftovers reheat wonderfully.
Thai Green Curry paste
This paste is a flavorful and delicious flavoring for many kinds of dishes, from stir fry to slow cooker to instant pot! It is slightly spicy without being overpowering, and has the subtle flavor of lemongrass and green chili blended with garlic. That said, if you are not used to spice then you may want to use half the amount of paste, and increase the amount of ginger or even add a bit of garlic instead.
You can choose to make your own green curry paste, or find the paste in the grocery store (this is regularly carried in Asian grocery stores if you have difficulty finding it). You can also grab it online, and I'll add a link below.
The amount to use will depend on your brand or recipe, but aim for 4-5 servings based on package or recipe directions. You can always whisk in a bit more paste at the end if the taste is not strong enough, so err on the side of caution if you haven't used it before.
Many brands are high sodium, and this will alter the sodium content in this recipe. If you desire low sodium, you may wish to make your own. The sodium noted in the nutritional value for this recipe assumes an average level of sodium for an average store-bought brand.
Ingredients used in this recipe
I used the tinned version for this recipe, but sometimes make my own. I found the Maesri Thai Green Curry Paste offered on online grocery stores (Amazon.com), I believe quite likely packed by the same folks as the ingredient list and some of the graphics are identical. Thai Kitchen is a brand we also sometimes use, and contains a little less sodium per serving. Watch the labels for oil, or versions that come with coconut milk added.
