Red Curry with Spinach Noodles
Even though our apartment still has the lingering odor of Indian curry from the previous tenant, Thai curry surprisingly sounded good for dinner. I found red curry paste and organic coconut milk at Foetex (a grocery/Target style store within walking distance of our apartment). I start by cooking down an onion and handful of chopped garlic in water. After the onion is soft, I add 2 tablespoons of the curry paste and the can of coconut milk and cook until it is boiling. Next, turn the heat off, add whatever veggies you want and let them cook down in the hot sauce until they are your desired texture. We like ours still a little crisp. I added a little sliced avocado to the dish.
Normally we eat the curry over Jasmin rice but I found spinach noodles in the Thai food section and decided they would be an interesting substitution for the rice. I also get very tired of rice so a brake is always welcomed.
The coloring of the picture makes everything look a bit green (or yellow??) because the lighting in the apartment is very sparse.
I would also like to point out the white dishes we are now using!!! The yellow and blue floral, Aztec, country fusion pattern of the dishes in Vienna (we live in furnished apartments and have no choices!) was nothing to be sad about leaving behind!
