Vegan Thai Green Curry

This Thai Green Curry uses crispy chickpeas and tofu tossed up in a creamt coconut sauce with a bite of spice from the curry. It is a simple healthy meal bursting with thai infused flavours.

Traditional Thai Curry is made with chicken and fish sauce. To make it vegan/vegetarian I have swapped the chicken for Tofu and chickpeas as my source of protein, and the fish sauce for tamari (gluten free soy sauce) I also made sure to buy a green thai paste that was vegan friendly, Many shop bought pastes include shrimp paste so make sure to check the label if you are wanting a fully vegan meal. 

This dish can be served alongside steamed brown rice or enjoyed on its own for a lower carbohdyrate meal. You can also add in any additional veggies that you like... Aubergine, cauliflower, and potato would all taste great.
