6 servings


  • 2 (14 ounce) cans unsweetened coconut milk

  • 2 medium yellow squash

  • 1 medium zucchini

  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil, divided

  • 1 large sweet onion, sliced

  • 1 cup snow peas

  • ½ cup sliced fresh mushrooms

  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon green curry paste, or more to taste

  • 1 cup frozen peas

  • 1 cup vegetable broth

  • ½ cup baby corn, drained

  • ½ cup sliced bamboo shoots, drained

  • 1 tablespoon white sugar

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1 (12 ounce) package extra-firm tofu, cubed

  • 1 cup fresh bean sprouts

  • 10 leaves fresh basil


  1. Skim cream off the top of the coconut milk; set both cream and milk aside. Slice yellow squash and zucchini lengthwise, then cut each slices into quarters.

  2. Heat 1/2 of the sesame oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute squash, zucchini, onion, pea pods, mushrooms, and garlic until tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Do not brown.

  3. Heat remaining oil in a separate large frying pan over medium heat. Fry curry paste with coconut cream in the hot oil for 1 minute to take the bitterness off of the spice. Add coconut milk, frozen peas, vegetable broth, baby corn, bamboo shoots, sugar, and soy sauce; bring just barely to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, 20 to 30 minutes.

  4. Just before serving, stir in tofu, sprouts, and basil. Cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Unless you have a high tolerance for hot food, do not exceed 2 tablespoons curry paste.

You can use vegetable oil instead of sesame, chicken broth instead of vegetable, and canned straw mushrooms instead of fresh.
