Red Curry Paste


Homemade curry paste is the best- it's fresh, delicious, and contains no added chemicals or preservatives! It's simple to make, all you need is 15 minutes and a blender. Make a big batch and store it in the freezer for easy, healthy meal-prep. My recipe is inspired by my travels in Thailand. Use shallots, a red bell pepper, chilies, garlic, ginger, galangal, lemongrass, lime juice, and spices. You can make a variety of recipes with the curry paste such as Massaman curry, vegetable red curry, pineapple curry.
