Notes

Note1- I’ve tried a lot of store-bought green curry paste, the best one hands down to “Maesri.” They’re pretty good and I know most Thai restaurants use this product. It’s inexpensive and full of flavor. You can buy this brand at most supermarkets or buy it here on Amazon.
Note2- Store-brought low-sodium veg broth or homemade both are ok! (Check this one out: How to make Asian-Style Vegetable Stock)
Note3- Full-Fat coconut cream or coconut milk gives green curry rich creaminess. Lite or powdered coconut cream won’t taste as good as full-fat ones.
Note4- I know a lot of recipes tell you to use brown sugar or white sugar in your green curry. The sweetness from brown or white sugar doesn’t get along with Thai green curry( often tooo sweet~ )Trust me, you need to use coconut sugar or palm sugar. ps: use a grater to grate blocks of coconut sugar.
Note5- Please don’t use salt or soy sauce to season your green curry…Vegan fish sauce  tastes just like the ones made from salted anchovies. It gives your green curry an earthy umami flavor and delightful saltness…(You can check out this article The magic ingredients in my vegan cooking )
