Semi Home-made Thai Green Curry

There are somedays where you just absolutely cannot come up with anything to cook though your pantry is full. This recipe is for those days. You will have a fab meal with the least effort.

I have been wanting to make thai green curry for the longest time. But the ingredient list is pretty complex and this is my shortcut way of making it.

Ingredients -

Trader Joe's thai green curry sauce
Vegetable - carrots, broccoli, mushrooms, potatoes, green beans
Tofu if you have it.
Coconut milk if you have it.
2 tsp of oil

Method -

Sauté the vegetables for a couple of minutes and let them cook in their own juices in a closed pan till semi cooked.
Add the simmer sauce and let it simmer for 5-10 minutes.
Add a splash of coconut milk after turning off the heat.
Serve hot with rice/noodles.

The only work I had was to chop up the vegetables. If you are feeling even lazier, just mix with a bag of frozen asian stir fry mix. I can't guarantee the taste with frozen veggies though but with fresh veggies, this is a delight to eat. I love Trader Joe's. It is my happy place and I really love that their mixes are healthy and not full of filler ingredients. This was really flavorful and tasty not bland like most of the ready made mixes I have tried from Target.
I will try to post a couple of semi-home made meals since I know many of you are working full time and are unable to make "from scratch" meals at 7.30 PM. Let me know if you try this. Do you have any semi home-made favourites?
