I know I was just saying how hot it is outside, and how could I want warm spicy curry on a hot summer day, right?  Well, I am very thankful for air conditioning and after several hours of cooling off, and some inspiration from blog surfing, I decided that curry was going to be the dinner entrée of the evening.

Often when I make curries, I find that they are too one-note and the flavors are just not as complex as the curries I enjoy when I am at a Thai restaurant for example.  But this time it was different.  This combination was the perfect expression of sweet, spicy, sour and salty.  No one-note curry this time and I could have eaten plate after plate of it!

Also, this was my first time cooking with coconut oil which I loved.  I can’t wait to try baking with it.

    Your recipe sounds delicious, Mercedes! I’m making a green curry quinoa today for my neighborhood co-op. After reading your recipe, I may have to make Thai twice in one week 🙂
