Thai Red Curry

Lovers of food and time spent with family P< couldn't resist taking a stab at one of our favorite dishes everyone orders at our local Thai Restaurant, THE KING AND I. Our extended family has been enjoying the delicious flavors of Thailand cuisine for decades! With all of the wonderful vegetables from our local farmers and the essential Thai seasonings that we keep on hand, P< whipped up Evil Jungle Prince, a hot, spicy, coconut sauce with fresh herbs, green beans, and bamboo shoots. You can add chicken, shrimp, fresh/fried tofu, or keep it simple and just add your favorite vegetables. The experience is all in the sauce!
