This is a boisterous green curry porridge made with pan-toasted brown rice, spicy herb-packed green coconut broth, all punctuated with winter squash and lots of green onions. It’s the kind of bowl that keeps you warm, full, and happy from the inside out.
Green Curry Porridge: Variations
A good number of you have made this over the years. Here are a few stand-out riffs on the recipe from the comments. Over here, sometimes we like to serve it with a poached egg on top. Other times we work in some chickpeas and a bit of pan-fried tofu to top things off.
- Mix it up! Drops of Jupiter swapped out the rice…”My boyfriend made this last night substituting rice with a high fibre grain mix (wheat, buckwheat, rice, chinese barley, wild rice) and it was stupendous! we didn’t even saute the rice. We used organic veg broth and in place of sorrel, baby spinach and arugula that was lying in the fridge. Eating this for lunch now too as it makes for great leftovers.”
- Other squash: Claire notes, “ I used acorn squash, stirred in some tofu, and garnished with chopped peanuts”
The key with this recipe is to get the seasoning right. If you under salt, it’ll be bland. So, pay close attention. You also want it to have nice acidity from a generous squeeze of lime, a kick of spiciness from the chile pepper, and a jolt of green from the sorrel or spinach, cilantro, and green onions. The creamy coconut milk brings it all together. You can dial any of the variables to your liking and, of course, experiment with other toppings.
