Recipe

I used to live in Thai Town in Los Angeles and every time I had a hard day, all I wanted when I got home was Thai take-out from my favorite place down the street. And on especially hard days, their red curry was always the answer. Creamy and packed with complex spices and paired with some binge watching of Netflix, and the terrible day floated away.

However now that I live about forty minutes from Thai town and can't find any Thai food that comes close to my beloved Thai Town favorite, I make my own Thai red curry at home. This version is also much lighter than a restaurant version since it uses minimal oil, light coconut milk, and zucchini noodles. It also works great with chicken, pork, shrimp, and even chickpeas.
