..for the paste..

  • 2-3 Thai Chillies green; bird's eye - deseeded for less heat
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 Lemongrass Stalk
  • 1/2 Onion
  • 1 inch Ginger
  • 1 tbsp Tofu
  • 1 tsp Lime Zest
  • 1 tsp Ground Coriander Seeds
  • 1 pinch Cumin
  • Thai Basil handful
  • 1 pinch White Pepper
  • Sea Salt to taste
  • Water

..for the green curry..

  • 400 g Coconut Milk full fat - 1 can
  • 2-3 Indian Aubergines
  • 1 Green Pepper medium
  • 100 g Mangetout
  • 100 g Baby Corn
  • 100 g Beansprouts
  • 2 tbsp Vegan Fish Sauce store bought or homemade
  • 1/2 tbsp Soft Brown Sugar

..to serve..


  • Make the green curry paste. Toast the spices with chopped garlic and onion for a couple of minutes to bring up the flavours. Blend with the rest of the ingredients until it reaches a smooth texture (add some water if needed).
  • Chop the green pepper and the aubergines to bite size and sauté with baby corn in vegan "fish" sauce until caramelized. Remove the veggies from the pan.
  • Add the brown sugar, the curry paste and the coconut milk to the pan. Stir well and bring it to a boil. Add the veggies and simmer until they are fork tender (for about 20 minutes). In the last 5 minutes add in the mangetout.
  • Cut the tofu into triangles (press first if needed). Coat it in sesame seed and bake or air fry until crispy and golden (15-20 minutes).
  • Prepare the rice noodles according to their instructions.
  • In a bowl arrange a handful of noodles and the green curry on the bottom, and top with sesame tofu triangles and fresh coriander leaves or thai basil.


Vegan fish sauce: Bring 250 ml of water to a boil and pour it over 1 sheet of Kombu Seaweed. Allow to cool completely to better infiuse the flavour, then add 100 ml of Tamari .
