    I used broccoli instead of baby bok choy (since my store didn’t have it) and this red curry simmering sauce i found instead of red curry paste (I should have just went to another store but figured it would work fine) and it was great 🙂 the sauce is so flipping good!

  2. Michelle says:

    Have been wanting to try this ever since the day you posted. Finally did and my partner and 3 year old daughter loved it. That is NOT the norm! Looks like this will be added to the weekly rotation! Will be recommending it!

  3. Sherry says:

    This was very good. I doubled the recipe, omitted the kale since I didn’t have any, added onion, yellow pepper and garlic/chili paste. Garnished with bean sprouts, green onion and sesame seeds. I added some steamed brocollini on the side. Very colourful, filling and delicious dinner and I have leftovers for tomorrow!

  4. Sasha says:

    Yum! Had this for dinner two nights in a row, one with rice and the other with rice noodles and added tofu. Amazing sauce!

  5. Chanelle says:

    This is now one of my favourite recipes EVER. Everything about it, from the sauce to the noodles, pairs so well and tastes amazing. I use edamame in the place of the kale <3 Thank you so much for this creative recipe.
