Vegan Green Curry Recipe

This Vegan Green Curry Recipe is one of my favourite meals and a great recipe to whip up for dinner or a hearty lunch. No meat or dairy… just pure goodness and spice! This is also a great recipe for when you want to make your own curry paste! It’s super simple and the smell is divine! 

For some reason and I don’t know why… but the gardening gods are on our side so our BASIL is flourishing in the backyard!

Usually I am the first person to kill something that grows from the ground. I have taken advantage of this and used the most beautiful Basil grown by yours truly. The smell is divine. So here is a super tasty Vegan Green Curry Recipe.
