This simple and flavor packed Whole30 green curry dish is loaded with veggies and is sure to please the whole family!
Good gracious, my belly is very happy right now. And it has been all week because I have been feasting on THIS >>> Whole30 Thai Green Curry.
Come to mama.
Ordering take out is quite possibly one of my favorite things. It almost always happens on Sunday nights, when I’m settled in to the couch for some serious Netflix and chill.
Oh and it almost always comes from Ping Pong – a fabulous restaurant serving Chinese, Thai, and Asian cuisine. But now that this whole “I have Celiac’s” thing happened, ordering take out is a little more difficult and potentially dangerous.
Luckily, Thai curry is safe. And it has quickly become my go-to order on Sunday nights.
BUT let me tell you, this little Sunday night habit of mine has become expensive. So I figured, what the heck – I can make this at home!
And YOU can too. Trust me. This recipe couldn’t be easier.
Let’s make some Whole30 Green Curry!
Here’s how we do it:
- Grab your protein of choice. I used chicken, but shrimp would be awesome here too.
- Get lots of veggies. I went pretty traditional with bell peppers and bamboo sprouts; but next time I’m doing broccoli and sweet potato.
- Throw that shiz in a pot. (There are a few more steps than this; but that is basically it.)
And don’t forget the secret ingredient – COCONUT BUTTER.
Ohhhhh man, I have been feeling the coconut butter lately. To be honest, I usually just eat it straight off the spoon for dessert; but it added a nice creaminess to this curry that you are going to love.

If there are any brown bits stuck to the pan, add about ¼ cup of coconut milk and scrape down the pan. Add remaining coconut milk and coconut butter and bring to a low boil.
