RED CURRY!

red curry | designlovefest

okay, okay you’re in for a real treat today! this curry is out of this world delicious and so easy (no joke!). the secret is in which is a 100% must for this recipe. i started using a couple of years ago but it wasn’t until my friend katherine made her curry that was 10x better than mine and shared the secret that she puts in an equal amount of fish sauce to paste. and that my friends is the key! for every one can of coconut milk you use you’re going to put two tablespoons each of the curry paste, fish sauce and coconut sugar.  we made this with shredded beef but i’ve also made it which chicken thighs and it’s just as good! and bri just made it with ground pork and added pineapple which is really taking this to the next level! so many ways to make it, just do it and tell us you’re not obsessed! – joanie

now, for what you’ll need. i split my shopping between my local thai market and trader joe’s. you can make this recipe fully vegetarian by upping the veggies and you also can sub in different ones that what i used, mushrooms, squash, carrots, onion, etc. i like to try and pack this with vegetables for the health kick and to help keep you full. i also like this with a big handful of kale if you feel so inclined.

• combine the fish sauce, curry paste and coconut sugar into a small bowl and mix well.

• heat your pan until hot, once hot add a tiny bit of oil, just to coat the bottom. too much oil and your curry sauce will separate! add your meat, searing until brown, don’t over crowd the pan, you might have to do this in two batches. once cooked remove and set aside. keeping the heat at medium, add the fish sauce, curry paste and sugar mixture into the pan and mix with the meat juices for about 30 seconds. then add one can of coconut milk. stir, scraping up all the bits stuck to the bottom of the pan, and mix well. it should be smooth. no lumps! add the coconut cream and the water and mix again. add the meat back in, bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer.

• i like to blanch my broccoli in salted water, this is an optional step but somehow i think it makes a difference in flavor, up to you. so you can either put the veggies in raw or, heat a pan of salted water, bring to a boil, put broccoli in and cook until bright green around 1-2 minutes. drain, chop and put into the curry!

• add the peppers or any other veggie you want and then put in about 5 lime makrut leaves. rip them slightly and mix them in. i think ripping them brings out some of the flavor, but up to you! i like to use the frozen peppers from trader joe’s they are already chopped so it cuts down on prep time.

• for the rice, follow the directions on the bag or do what we did, rinse two cups of jasmine rice. heat a small sauce pan on medium heat with 1 tablespoon coconut oil and a pinch of salt. once hot, add the rice, and let it toast, stirring constantly. once it’s slightly fragrant add 2 cups of water, bring to a boil, reduce to a very low simmer and cover. cook for 12 minutes. turn heat off and don’t uncover!! let it sit for 5ish minutes. remove lid, fluff and serve!

MY SELF LOVE STORY

i have felt a huge shift in myself lately, especially in the past 6 months. i’ve put in a lot of work on my mental health and personal happiness and have found really meaningful results. as someone who has dealt with anxiety since childhood, i feel like i have truly been untangling my issues and finding peace. i guess i just wanted to write down some thoughts and some things that have helped me…

HAIR TWIST

hair twist | designlovefest

i’ve seen a few hair bows walking around town and i’m into. definitely more of a fan of the undone/messy look but that’s totally possible with these styles. i like the idea of a sweet bow and slightly messy hair. and i’m also really into the simple addition of fancy bobby pins. i found some very cute options below and all at an amazing price point. so very gucci feeling floral prints including that blue and red scarf that is the perfect hair or neck accessory. stock up and mix up that hair routine! – joanie
