  • 2 cups water

  • 1 cup uncooked rice

  • 3 potatoes, peeled and chopped

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 1 yellow onion, chopped

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped

  • 1 crown broccoli, chopped into bite-sized pieces

  • ¼ cup chopped green beans

  • ¼ cup shredded carrots

  • 1 (11 ounce) bottle red Thai curry sauce (such as Trader Joe's®)

  • cup coconut milk

  • 1 (8 ounce) can pineapple chunks, drained and juice reserved

  • 1 dash red pepper flakes (Optional)


  1. Bring water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.

  2. Place potatoes in a microwave-safe bowl with water to cover. Microwave until fork-tender, 6 to 7 minutes.

  3. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onion and garlic until onion is almost completely soft, about 3 minutes. Add red pepper; cook until nearly tender, about 2 minutes. Stir in 2 tablespoons water. Add broccoli, green beans, and carrots. Cover and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 6 minutes.

  4. Stir potatoes into the skillet with the vegetable mixture. Add curry sauce and coconut milk. Pour in pineapple chunks and about 2 tablespoons of pineapple juice. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes and stir. Serve with rice.

Cook's Notes:

Using precooked or leftover rice will make this recipe even quicker.
