Full of delicious nutrients, veggies and fresh herbs, I adore curries. They are my go-to weeknight dinner.

I rarely use curry pastes, opting to create my own, but in Thai curries they nearly always start with a paste. Here I used a really good quality shop-bought paste and added a few extras.

Feel free to add in any veggies you fancy and serve it with a big bowl of wholegrain rice or quinoa.
