The essence of Thai green curry is in the fresh and fragrant ingredients used. All plants, so making this receipe vegan is super easy.

When you are ready to serve, quickly put all the blanch vegetable and tofu in the hot curry and serve immediately.

*Chicken Style Stock - To give it that extra flavour, I use chicken style stock to the dish, but don’t worry, were not using real chicken.
Just look for the stock that says “chicken style”, they’re usually just vegetable stock with added seasoning for flavour and no chicken is really used.
Be sure to check the ingredients label, just to be sure, or alternatively you can use vegetable stock if you prefer.
To get that lovely fragrant and sweet authentic flavour, be sure to use 100% coconut cream. Regular coconut cream usually contains water so is less than 50% coconut, which really dilutes the flavour. So be sure to get the 100% to get that authentic taste 👌🏻
Vegetable and tofu toppings used in this recipe is what I like to eat. Sometimes I mix it up depending on what I feel like, you're more than welcome to change the topping more suited to your taste.
The choice and number of topping used will change the prep time.
I recommend pre cooking your vegetables and put them in just before you serve, to insure the vegetables stays firm when consuming. Otherwise vegetable will be overcooked and can thicken the soup.
