Serving (Optional):

Instructions

  • Put the pasta on to cook according to the package directions. When cooked, drain and rinse and set aside.
  • Add sesame oil to a pot on medium heat along with crushed garlic, minced ginger and red curry paste and sauté for a couple of minutes.
  • Add the coconut milk and stir in. Heat until it reaches a simmer.
  • Add chopped vegetables and bring it back to a simmer. Reduce heat and let it cook until the vegetables are soft but firm.
  • Add soy sauce, rice vinegar, lime juice and coconut sugar and simmer for two minutes.
  • Add the cooked pasta and gently toss with the red curry sauce until the pasta is well coated.
  • Turn off the heat, and your red curry pasta is ready to serve.
  • Serve topped with sesame seeds, red pepper flakes and fresh chopped cilantro.

Notes

  1. Pasta - we used tagliatelle, but you can use any pasta, linguine and spaghetti are also great options.
  2. Red curry paste - this curry is mild. If you like things on the hotter side, then feel free to increase the amount of red curry paste.
  3. Coconut milk - should be canned, unsweetened and full fat. You could use light coconut milk (also canned, unsweetened) but it won't be as creamy and delicious.
  4. Cremini mushrooms - also known as baby bella's or portobellini mushrooms. You can also use white button mushrooms.
  5. Spring onions - are also known as green onions, salad onions or scallions.
  6. Coconut sugar - is simply to balance the flavors in this dish, it does not make it sweet. Brown sugar works great too.
  7. Gluten-free. To make it gluten-free just use a gluten-free pasta and switch the soy sauce for tamari.
  8. Storing: Keep leftover red curry pasta stored in the fridge in a covered container and enjoy within around 5 days. It's easily reheated in the microwave.
  9. Freezing: You can also freeze it if you like, for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge and then reheat it in the microwave.
