It’s the second edition of Shaun Can Cook! This week’s selection? Green Curry!
-Cooked rice (Use the rice cooker)
-Half an onion
-1/4 pound green beans
-2 heads of broccoli
-1 green bell pepper
-8 oz frozen peas
-8 oz-1 pound protein (I gave Shaun the choice of tofu or shrimp and he chose shrimp)
-2 TBSP honey
-1 TBSP Braggs Amino
-1 tsp green curry paste
-1 can coconut milk
-Big skillet or Wok
-Strainer to defrost shrimp
-Lid for the pan.
-Make sure your child is sufficiently occupied. She likes to sort food into different colored bowls. Sunflower seeds being a favorite.
-Place shrimp in the colander and run cold water over them or soak them for ~5 minutes. If you are using a different type of protein, cut it up into bite sized pieces.
-Cut the onion, first in half and then into longer pieces.
-Put aside on a plate (not in the pan)
-Trim each end of the green beans. You can do multiple at one time.
-Set aside on a plate.
-Trim broccoli so it’s just the tree part.
-Cut the bell pepper in half.
-Cut out the stem, seeds, and white membrane.
-Chop into long pieces.
-Turn the stove on to medium high heat and put 1 tsp of green curry (more if you like it spicier and are not feeding a child) and the can of coconut milk in the pan and stir it up.
-Next add 1 TBSP of Braggs and 2 TBSP of honey. Stir.
-If you’re using meat or tofu, add it now and cook for about 5 minutes.
-Add all the veggies you chopped.
-Cook for about 5 minutes, covered.
-If you’re using shrimp, add shrimp and peas.
-Cover and cook for 5-10 minutes more-until the peas are no longer frozen and the shrimp is pink.
-Serve on a bed of rice.
-Sit back and watch as your daughter eats it all up and asks for more.
Another HIT by Shaun. He’s doing great! See? Cooking is easy!
