Green Curry and Thai Sprouted Rice



Green curry is not beautiful. I tried to dress it up with spring onion 'flowers'. But to make up for its humble appearance, this curry is awesomely good. I made it using a small can of curry sauce concentrate that I bought at an Asian grocery in Madison. It requires mixing with a can of coconut milk. It has just the right amount of heat and a wide spectrum of curry flavor. Plus it made my house smell divine for 2 days.

Red Thai sprouted rice goes with it so well.

Jan also has some broccoli lightly steamed, a citrus salad with coconut, and a super-dark Belgian chocolate seashell from Trader Joe's. This will be a good bento for a winter's day.

  4. Jenn: I do love me some bento curry!

    Lil'chan: You are 100% correct!!

    LiaChen: The sprouted rice is terrific! It is mild, sweet, and slightly nutty in flavor. And has 10,000 times the vitamins, or something like that....

  5. Do you sprout the rice yourself, or buy it already sprouted? If you buy it sprouted, where from? I've started eating sprouted grain breads and pastas, and would love to have sprouted rice as well.

  7. Toro: I sprout it myself, just like growing mung bean or alfalfa sprouts except the rice still needs to be cooked when sprouted, just takes less time. It tastes so good! I too got interested from loving sprouted rice breads. It has to be raw brown (not dehulled or white rice) and soaked overnight...the rinsed 2x daily and left in a slightly warm place to do its thing for 2-3 days.
