2 teaspoons agave nectar
3 cups Portobello mushrooms (cut into squares)  (2 mushrooms)
1 cup green beans

  4. Gorgeous! I have a container of Green Curry Paste, I may try using that instead.

  5. Lay, thank you!! This seems like a dish that you would make for sure. Let me know if you need any help with measurements and switching to grams. I am going to make your buns recipe and post it on my blog! XOXO back to you:)

    Shen, thank you!! I haven't tried the Green Curry Paste, so I would love to hear how it turns out if you make it. I am sure it will be just as tasty. This was a fun and easy recipe. My taste testers (my son and his college friend) ate it all and said it was really good. I listed it as 2 servings because of them. Thanks for stopping by:)

  6. This looks so fresh and delicious. Lovely colors, and great photos. Thanks for the recipe; I'll be trying it soon for sure.

  7. Rose~thank you for stopping by. I think you will love this dish.

  8. I struggle with developing curry recipes because the "heat" of curry powder varies so much. Do you think using curry paste gives more consistency?

  9. Joanne, thank you for stopping by. I have only used the curry paste to make Thai dishes, so I don't have a ton of experience with it. I have mostly used the curry powder, which I love. I can tell you that the taste of the curry paste does not overpower the other ingredients in the dish~which I like. It blends well with the coconut milk and has such a fresh taste. The ingredients in the paste are different than the powder, so it produces a completely different taste. Curry paste has red chili pepper, garlic, lemongrass, Thai ginger, salt, shallot, spices, kaffir lime. Curry powder has Coriander, turmeric, cumin, cayene, nutmeg, etc. I know I haven't answered your question on consistency and heat, but I am leaning towards the curry paste:)

  10. In the form of Inexperienced, Now i'm once and for good seeking via the internet just for articles or reviews which has been about help others. With thanks.
