Thai Green Curry Recipe

Thai Green Curry Recipe. AD

Thai Green Curry Recipe We love Thai food. The aromas, the fresh spices and most of all the flavours. So when
Mae Jum
got in touch asking if we wanted to try some of their spice mixes, I didn't hesitate to say yes! Within a couple of days, a beautifully packed box of six different Thai Curry pastes arrived through my letterbox.Jatuporn or Jum as she is known by friends and family was born in a small market town in the south of Thailand. She moved to the UK to raise her family. As they started to fly the nest, she decided the nicest gift a mum (Mae in Thai) could give, would be to share the secrets to the recipes they grew up enjoying.The Mae Jum journey had started.This is the recipe for a Prawn Green Curry using one of the Mae Jum spice mixes. We have also tried the Massaman Curry, which was equally as delicious, so make sure you head over to my social media to see pictures of that too. Thai green curry is a house favourite and is so easy to make at home. We used prawns this time, however, if you don't fancy prawns, simply substitute them for pork, chicken or bulk it up with seasonal vegetables if you are vegetarian.

We eat a lot of Asian food and this Sticky Pork with an Asian Slaw didn't disappoint. It was really quick to prepare and cook and even though I needed to pay full price for the pork steaks because there was nothing in the yellow sticker section, it still came in at under a fiver for all of us.

Hot Roast Asparagus & Potato Salad

Hot Roast Asparagus & Potato Salad [AD]

A short while ago I was sent the recipe book and Diary from The Diary Diary team. As soon as I opened the package, I was thrown straight back to my childhood. every year around Christmas time, my mum would get these delivered with her special Christmas delivery from the milkman.

I can honestly say that I didn't know that they were still producing them. But was pleasantly surprised how good they were. On top of a week to page diary, you get some amazing recipes to try in the actual diary and the recipe book is full of some wonderful recipe ideas for the family.

There is a range of mouth-watering breakfasts, lunches and weekday meals and to top it off some lovely weekend specials.

All of the recipes are fairly easy to follow and the ones that we have tried have been delicious. The recipe that I am doing today was very popular in our house and even got the kids eating asparagus! It took no time to prepare and less than half an hour to cook, so perfect after a day of home learning.


Easy Chicken Satay

Easy Chicken Satay with sticky rice and cucumber salad

Sometimes you need something quick and easy for your mid-week meals and this Chicken Satay recipe fits the bill well. Served with sticky rice and a cucumber salad, turns a traditional snack into an evening meal rather nicely.

Being unusually organised, I remembered to get the chicken breast out of the freezer in the morning, allowing them to be thoroughly defrosted by early evening.

It may appear to be a large list of ingredients. However a lot of it you may already have in the cupboard. It came in at just over £5 but did make enough for my lunch the next day.
